Dear God, let me seek to be more than just a receiver of your grace. I wish for relief from my troubles, a balm for the parts of me that are ground down, raw. This is what I cry out for when I ask for help.
Lord, let me not seek to be soothed, but to become a channel of support to others. Let me seek strength, not for myself, but so I may be more useful to others.
Even in my prayers, let my own desire for well-being be placed last.
