O Lord our God, let us be patient this day as this season tends to make us want things to happen quickly. Help us to live today in the moment. Being aware that we only get to live this day once. May we take advantage of the opportunities that present themselves. Let us be discerning in in the decisions we make, knowing that when we listen for your Spirit to guide us we will do well. When challenges present themselves may our anxiety not overwhelm us. Thank you for your presence in our lives this and every day. Amen.
