Pause for Prayer: SUNDAY 10/18

It's Sunday, Lord...

It's the Lord's Day, your day:
at least that's what we say...

Of the week's seven days,
this one's yours, Lord -
at least in theory if not in my practice...

So, help me, Lord,
help me live this day, your day,
a little more faithful to your word,
a little more grateful for your gifts,
a little more attentive to your presence,
a little more mindful of my neighbor's needs,
a little more measured in my pace,
a little more generous in my giving,
a little more open to this day's opportunities,
a little more trusting in your mercy,
a little more loving in my words and deeds,
a little more present to you in prayer...

I guess if you add up all my "little mores"
it comes out to be quite a lot -
but even with all of them,
it won't be more than I ought to give you this day...

It's Sunday, Lord,
the Lord's day, your day:
help me spend it with you 
- and if not all of it -
then help me spend a little bit more time with you today
than the time I gave you yesterday
in gratitude for the time you offer me
every day...
