amidst the pace of our days

Holy One,

Amidst all that goes on,
we set aside designated time
to slow down.
And thus we slow down
the momentum of our day
that pulls us ever on.
We resist that pull
in prayer—
in mindful attention
given to people and circumstances.
And when we reenter the current
and are swept back into the rush,
we give thanks
that Your grace, our God, Your love
continue to embrace those whose circumstances
we all too easily lose in the pace of our days—
until we pray again,
in the name of the One never swept away,

Amen.
