Pause for Prayer: SUNDAY 6/28

Image source
Perhaps the greatest benefit of these daily posts is how they remind us to stop and make some time for prayer. Regardless of the content of what's posted, the very title, Pause for Prayer, calls attention to our relationship with God on a daily basis.   Attention...  Attending to our relationship with God amid all the distractions...

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...
