Excerpt from the Diary of St. Faustina:

When we pray, we ought not force the Lord God to give us what we want, but we should rather submit to His holy will (Diary – 1525).


Dear Jesus, I know that St. Faustina once wrote the words “My will” on a page in her Diary and then she crossed them out because she only wanted to do Your will. I am afraid to let go of my will, Lord. I am afraid that I will not be happy if I am not able to do my own will. I am sorry that I try to force You to do my will, Lord. Teach me how to surrender. Take away my fear and help me to be more like St. Faustina.
