Amid all the distractions
whirling within and around me,
help me stop each day to pause, to pray
to pay attention to you, Lord...
Help me pay attention
to how you pay attention to me:
24/7, ever watchful in your vigil,
day and night...
Help me attend to any words you speak,
whispered in my heart,
words to guard and guide me
and keep me from harm's way...
Help me attend to your Spirit,
moving in my thoughts and plans;
help me attend to what you ask of me
and walk the path you chart for me today...
Help me pay attention to all whose paths
will intersect with mine today;
help me attend to their burdens and their needs
and what gifts of peace they offer me...
Make me mindful of you, Lord,
and help me pause for prayer each day:
in the quiet, help me just sit still and attend
to the silence of your presence...
