Dear God, I sit in stillness, preparing to go out and meet the day. These solitary moments are themselves part of this journey. You are here with me. You already were before even I arose.
Lord, let me recognize you. I seek and seek, and my efforts feel for naught.
What power you grant us, your creatures! Our nearness to you is entirely in our own control.
Open my eyes to see where I already am, dear Lord.
