This is not self-idolizing. Rather it is self-examination of what I think of myself and an encouragement to be virtuous for Christ’s sake. If indeed I am not these, they are what I want to be; what I want to return to God as to have been.
I am a calm and pleasant spirit
I am a good and principled person
I am sensitive to the needs of others
I am simple, diligent and smart
I am perfection-conscious
I am a happy person
I love my fellow persons
I love children and care about their welfare
I care about the welfare of the elderly
I care about my country and the wellbeing of her citizens
I am a Christian in-love with Jesus and Mary
I cherish the friendship and the abiding of the Holy Spirit in me
Above all, I love and trust in God
I am the handmade of the Lord and surrender to Him as I live for Him daily, loving Him in my fellow persons, feeling Him in the fruits of the Holy Spirit, and hoping to see Him in eternity.
And so, I pray:
- To eschew all fears and match charity with faith
- To have confidence in my abilities
- For the courage to stand for justice and do right by God [and so, by man]
- To be firm in faith, virtues and love
- To be proactive in good works, and
- To be productive in the public good
So, help me God, through Christ. Amen.
I am IfeanyiChukwu
