This prayer teaches us the state we should be in for true service.

… the work must be long and slow even for the best and that striking conversions cannot be integral. They change the orientation of the being, they put it definitively on the straight path; but truly to attain the goal none can escape the need of innumerable experiences of every kind and every instant.
Contemplating the Divine Everywhere and in All Things. The Prayers and Meditations of the Mother show us the way.
