Lord, you know how easily I excuse
myself from meeting your demands
for my life. I do so even while
knowing that when I fulfill them I
always discover new strength,
hidden energy and untapped
resources of love within me. Help
me to give myself to you in love,
to meet your demands, and to
experience the power of grace
unleashed within me.
