Dear God, let my thoughts rest here, now, in this present moment. Already, so early, my mind casts forward days, weeks, and even months. Hopes and fears cloud my thinking and I barely know where I am and what is real.

My body, seated, still, in this room with you, breath slowly moving in and out. Lord, bring my attention here. What transpires here, between me and you, is all I need to be attentive to.

Let me please place my relationship with you in the center of my thoughts. Let it be the only reality with which I concern myself.

Let me do your will today, O Lord.

(Letter #996)
