My Prayer Today

I pray for LIFE today, dear God. I'm tired and I have too much to do. I don't want to drag around. I don't want my tired body to drag my spirit down with it. I don't want to do what is unnecessary to do.

So I pray for guidance on how to maintain a really creative tension between working and taking care of myself. I know, Holy One, that if I can remain aware of You today the tired feeling will be overcome by the Loving Energy You Are. I know as well that remaining aware of You will help me know when to stop working and get some rest.

Here You are. Come, Holy Spirit, come.

Ah. In Thomas Merton's Book of Hours I read: Our souls rise up from our earth like Jacob waking from his dream and exclaiming: "Truly God is in this place and I knew it not!" God becomes the only reality, in Whom all other reality takes its proper place--and falls into insignificance.

May it be so.

praying for space in this busy days...or as my SD says, to find "peace in the space between the words" - as if that is the only place I can sometimes find space and peace....
