Dear God, let me not pine for a feeling of connection or serenity. My feelings are not important. Let me, instead, seek your will even though I may wish to pursue my own aims, even though my feelings may be ones of isolation and self-sufficiency. These are the times I need your dominion over me the most.
I meditate and pray not to feel better, but to set aside how I may feel.
Lord, let me seek your will today first, in all things.
