149. Demand to Set Fire to the Forest of Darkness
I built a fire of devotion in the dark forest of delusion. Alas! the fire only smoldered. Then Thou didst come and set fire to a few of my frailties. That fire quickly spread on, consuming the bushes of my prickly desires, my tall, towering vanities, and the thick underbrush of my arrogance. The whole forest of my darkness is blazing, and I behold only Thy light shining everywhere. I thank Thee, Father, for Thy help. Help me thus always. Let me open a path of light for all to follow!
