Teach us to count our days that 
we may gain a wise heart. - Psalm 90:12 (NRSV)

A new year makes me acutely conscious of the passage of time: how we allow calendars and clocks to dominate us, how there is never enough time for what we need or want to do. It reminds me how time changes some things but not others. Time helps heal grief...

Today's Prayer
Eternal God, teach us to use our days to “gain a wise heart.” Amen.

To be a better steward of my time


Respond by posting a prayer.

I join many of those who will pray for you as you seek to discern what you are called to be at this moment. May God grant you the courage to fulfill that calling. May we all open our eyes and see the misery, open our ears and hear the cries of God’s people, and, like God through the Lord Jesus Christ, be incarnate amongst them.”
