The Blessing of Time

Reflect

Time can be our adversary or ally. But what’s comforting is that it always moves forward. Let this prayer be a reminder to appreciate the little moments that make up the day.


Pray

Dear God,
My heart is heavy
at the passing of time,
but I take refuge
in the certainty
that you await me
at my journey’s end.

Give me the peace of mind
to recognize and appreciate
the passage of time—
never wasting it.

Every moment, I know,
is a gift from you.
Amen.


Act

Fit silent prayer into every hour of the day today. If only for 30 seconds, close your eyes and quiet your heart in thanks to God for the gift of the present moment.
