Lord, strip me of my selfishness.
Let me learn from the anguish of its painful removal
From every fiber of my being
For its disease is intertwined deep within me
And its influence is pervasive.
Remove this caustic agent from my actions
Help me keep the plans I make,
Invest more in those I love, and
Value others by giving of my time
I have been too busy to be kind
And I hate myself because of it.
