God -Today, I thank You for my body, the vessel which is ensouled with the perfect spirit You gifted me at birth. Lord, please help me empty the vessel that I am. Rid me of my need to prevail or win, or to overlay my will on others or to satisfy my own needs. For in that empty place, room is made to fill my vessel with more of Your love and less of my self-importance. I pray that in that empty place there will be more of You and less of me. In that empty place may Your Kingdom always Reign. May I no longer be preoccupied with who I am but rather whose I am and to better serve You now and forever in Christ’s name. Amen
