A Prayer for Unhurrying

Lord, the day has been breathless.

I stop now for a few moments and I wonder: Is the signature of the holy over the rush of the day?

Or have I bolted ahead, anxiously trying to solve problems that do not belong to me?

Holy Spirit of God, please show me:

how to work relaxed,

how to make each task an offering of faith,

how to view interruptions as doors to service,

how to see each person as my teacher in things eternal.

In the name of him who always worked unhurried.


(Richard Foster, Prayers from the Heart, p.76)

My selfish and mindless heart needs to pray this each day. Thanks for sharing it, Scott.
