Let me start each day with a prayer
instead of a to-do list ringing in my mind.
Free me to take time to get away
and to be with you, basking in your presence
and listening for your voice rather than
paying attention to the voices around me
and in me that say, “Do this. Do that.”
Today let me be busy asking you,
“What should I do next?” and
“How can I please you?”
