As we pray in this moment time presses in upon us,
And labors our bodies and our minds;
We are unsure of our advance into the future,
And call to You that we may be allotted the wisdom
To use each moment of each day, fruitfully.
We come to You in gratitude,
That today we live, we breathe, we feel,
And that the warmth of life embellishes
Our earthly form and frame.
Let us be mindful of the gift that each day brings,
And knowledgeable that no effort is effort wasted.
We pray for continuance,
And ask that we may become keen to this life,
Bringing much of Your Love into the days we live.
