Dear God, let my faith be simple today. Let me not build complication into the workings of the world – seeing what is not there. Let me not wonder at people’s intentions and plans, but instead look about me and see what is.

My restless mind so desires drama and story. I look for the hidden motivations of others. I imagine all sorts of intent, and I congratulate myself on my insight. More often than not I am incorrect.

Let me, Lord, remain simple and plain. Let my thoughts be simple and plain. Let me try my best to be helpful today, adding positive energy to what is already happening all around me.

In every small thing, let me ask: how can I help? Let this be my simple task today.

Thy will be done.

(Letter #1277)
