Monday Prayer: To Be Who You Made Me

For me to be a saint means to be myself. Therefore the problem of sanctity and salvation is in fact the problem of finding out who I am and of discovering my true self. -Thomas Merton, New Seeds of Contemplation

Dear God,

Today help me to be myself. The self you have made. The self you continue to bring forward. The self that you have saved and are saving.

Bring me more fully into who you have made me to be. And help me to see this self as loved, as worthy, and as a gift.
