Dear God, deliver me from idleness, O Lord. It is easy to respond to the problems that arise in the world. Yet when no specific challenges before me, I fall into lassitude and sloth. I wait. I sit.
Lord, let me be willing to act today. Let me do more than simply respond to the world.
Let me craft the moments of the day into an offering for you. Let me see what you would have me do, even when it is not obvious.
