Slow down!

Oh, to write like the sainted Peter Marshall...

In the name of Jesus Christ, who was never in a hurry, we pray, O God, that You will slow us down, for we know that we live too fast.  With all of eternity before us, make us take time to live - time to get acquainted with You, time to enjoy Your blessings, and time to know each other.

Turn Friday on its head.  Slow down.  Take your time.  What doesn't get done today will wait until tomorrow, or Monday.  Spend time with the Lord.  Be engaged with your family and friends.  May the Lord answer this prayer for us all today - slow us down, O Lord!
