One of the readers in our community recently wrote to me and said something like:
I love the prayers you write. I need one that speaks just to the moment. Could you write one for that occasion?
And so today when the words to this prayer flowed from my heart, I thought I would share them with you.
A Prayer for the Moment
Today the day appears gigantic
And my heart is suffocating
With the weight of the world.
Right now I can’t think past the hour,
Much less the entire day.
This moment alone threatens to smother
And I need your love to fill me.
As life transcends from you,
May my every breath rely on the same-
Your holy power
To inhale for me,
To exhale over me,
And to breathe through me
To reveal the essence of your glory.
In his hand is the life of every living thing and the breath of all mankind.Job 12:10
