Pause for Prayer: FRIDAY 1/13

    Mother Theresa of Calcutta








Way too often, Lord,
I'm so busy and distracted 
or stuck in my past 
or worried about tomorrow
that I miss 
    how you're moving in my life,
    what you're doing in my life,
    how you're acting in my life
and I miss all the ways  
    you're sustaining me,
    guiding me,
    drawing me to trust in you...

Your love springs forth 
but I don't see it,
don't perceive it,
I fail to recognize it,
I miss it...
So, slow me down, Lord, 
and get my attention:
    rescue me from living in the past,
    from my anxiety about the day at hand,
    from my worries and fears about tomorrow...
Open my mind, my eyes and my ears, 
open my heart lest I miss again 
how you're with me, Lord, here and now,
in the moment at hand,
how you're with me, Lord
- today...

Today's the day that you've made, Lord,
the day at hand, the day I live,
your gift to me today:
let me rejoice in it and be at peace,
just one day at a time...
