Dearest God and Most Precious Teacher,

I thank You for Your Presence in and as my life, without which I am quite literally dead, and for Your Teachers who have brought this awareness to me by their endless patience, good will, and wisdom.

Let me now recognize that I have been brought to this point (with so far still to go!) not for my sake but for Yours, and let me see in every moment of my life a welcome opportunity to serve You and to devote to You all that I am or will ever be.
