time set aside

Our God,

We set time aside
to pray.
We set time aside
to more mindfully enter into Your presence.
We set time aside
to enter into Your timeless truth—
and so to enter into eternity.

It is in light of eternity then,
that we offer our prayers
for matters in time.
For time matters to You.
Matters in time matter to You,
and we set aside some of our time set aside
to marvel
at how significant our praying is
to matter to You—
at how significant we are
to matter to You,
and to consider
what eternity
makes of our prayer.

We pray, as always,
in the name of the one
who lived, consistently,
Your eternal truths in time,

Amen.
