Dear God, let me erase myself. Let me place myself below others. Whenever I may be presented with a choice, let me choose service over self. Let me avoid praise, shun recognition.

Lord let me do all these things as practice. My tendency is toward pride and ego. I see myself as one who decides, performs, controls. Let me choose actions and attitudes that undermine my sense of self. Let me be meek, humble, retiring. Let me go last.

(Letter #1179)
