Dear God, how can I be of use today? All my plans and thoughts are selfish. I seek leisure, ease, advancement, pleasure, security, status, praise. All for me.

Lord, let me shed these pursuits, and instead keep a simple aim: seeking and doing your will. Let me ask, over and over and over, what you would have me do. Let me accept the guidance that comes, even when you would have me do nothing, or act contrary to my desires.

O Lord, let me live faith today, as your servant and agent. Let me not seek to improve my position, but to aid and advance those around me.

Thy will be done today, let me seek and do it.

(Letter #1094)
