Prayer for Presence

The following are the words of a prayer by J. Phillip Newel.  I find myself reciting these words almost daily.  I often substitute me for us as a reminder to practice being thankful for and attentive to the gift of each moment.

In the gift of this new day

In the gift of this present moment

In the gift of time and eternity intertwined.

Let us be thankful

Let us be attentive

Let us be open to what has never happened before.

In the gift of this new day

In the gift of this present moment

In the gift of time and eternity intertwined.

Amen and Amen!!!
