God's Will Vs. Our Self-Will
Mortify Your Self-Will

When I left the confessional and started to recite my penance, I heard these words: I have granted the grace you asked for on behalf of that soul, but not because of the mortification you chose for yourself, but because of the act of complete obedience to My representative did I grant grace to that soul for whom you interceded and begged mercy. Know that when you mortify your own self-will, then Mine reigns within you (Diary, 365).

My Prayer Response:
Lord Jesus, help me to mortify my own self-will, so Your will shall reign within me. Give me opportunities through such mortification to help souls in need.
