Dear God, let me not withhold my efforts today, saving for some imagined tomorrow. You have so constructed me that I only act in the current moment. Tomorrow is a fiction – for me to save my energies for it is similarly a fantasy.

You place before me here, now, opportunities to serve you through serving my fellows.

Let me end of the day spent, exhausted with my efforts. You will replenish me and make me adequate to my tomorrow when it comes.

Do I have faith, O Lord, to live this day as though it were my only? Let me meet this test.

(Letter #1037)
