Dear God, even as my behavior is correct, my motives are faulty. I inwardly wish more for myself than is my portion, I wish ill to befall those who hurt me, I wish for complete freedom without consequence.
Lord, seep into me and make my inner life clean. Let me become transparent so that all can see the beacon you have lit in my heart. It is obscured with dark intent – let these layers wear away and let me shine from inside to out. Let my intent to follow your will become equally as visible as my actions.
