Dear God, today, let me attend to the craft of living rightly. Let me view every moment of this day as a building block, one small component that adds, along with its brethren, to a unified whole.
Each moment can be lived attentively, mindfully – or carelessly and with distraction. Let me be deliberate in each one. Let me move slowly and think calmly. Let me bring an attitude of care to each thought.
Let me build this day, piece by piece, as a work of devotion, a gift to my fellows – as you have bestowed gifts upon me.
Let me be a source of joy today, passing it on from you. Let this joy start with gratitude.
