We are human beings, lord, and we do not know our own greatness. Lord, give us the humility to ask for what we need, because no desire is vain and no request is futile. Each of us knows how best to feed our own soul; give us the courage to see our desires as coming from the fountain of your eternal wisdom. Only by accepting our desires can we begin to understand who we are.
Lord, Help me understand that all the good things in life that happen to me do so because I deserve them. Help me understand thats what moves me to seek out your truth is the same force that moved the saints, and the doubts I have are the same doubts that the saints had, and my frailities are the same frailities. Help me to be humble enough to accept that I am no different from other people.
Amen[ Excerpt from: Brida- Paulo Coelho ]
