Prayer for the Day:
Dear God, how well you must know my illusions.
I imagine that I am competent, that I have everything under control and all figured out,
that my intelligence and achievements will assure me favor in your sight.
Help me, O God, to cast away my illusions, that I may see myself more clearly as I really am.
Grant me the courage and honesty to admit my faults and to open my eyes to see my daily need for your redeeming mercies.
Amen.
