Pause for Prayer: THURSDAY 5/8

On any given day, Lord,
countless tasks demand my time
and vie for my attention...

And surely among these
there are some much more important
than the others...
No day should pass
without my thanking you
for all I have and what you promise...

No day should pass
without my looking to the needs of others first
and reaching out to serve them...

No day should pass
without my listening, in the quiet,
for the word you want to speak to me...

No day should pass
without my seeking to make right
my careless errors and mistakes...

No day should pass
without my working hard to meet
the obligations that are mine...

No day should pass
without my pausing and discerning
where your Spirit leads and guides me...

No day should pass
without my asking for your pardon
for the ways I've failed to love...
On any given day, Lord,
countless tasks demand my time
and vie for my attention...

Help me see what's most important
and attend to first things first,
with your guidance and your grace
- today, Lord...

Amen.
