Martyr’s Prayer

I do not work hard to earn credit. I work hard because that is how I glorify you. Even though I endure some challenges, I am no more special or no more deserving of your praise than anyone else. I just am, and I do the best I can to live a good life.

I will try hard avoid to avoid resentment and the temptation to expect others to make up for what may otherwise be lacking in my life. I will find joy in simple pleasures, and know that better days are coming.
