a hurry prayer...

Oh God.
I am always in a hurry.
Except for the precious moments I take to breathe and meditate.
But then,
I start to hurry,
packing in more than I really ought to try to finish or get done,
and then I end up feeling
like I didn't get anything done.

I know this is a first-world, time-management kind of prayer, and in the midst of the rest of the concerns and cares of the world,  well, I know...

But it's the prayer I have for this moment, and all I am really asking is for your still silence and spirit to slow me down in my hurried-ness to get things done,
and to simply just Be, breathe, and live my thoughts and actions with mindfulness and care.
I think it is called Presence.
