Dear God, I am enslaved by selfish thoughts and motivations. My desire for praise, my fear of want, my terror at being judged, my envy of others’ well-being — all shackles affixed to my misperceived self.
Lord, set my thoughts free. Let me not care for my status, safety, or comfort. My task on this earth is to spread news of your love. Does the hammer fear or resent the nail? Let me become useful, Lord.
