Just for today

A prayer to live in the moment.


Just for today,
What does it matter, O Lord, if the future is dark?
To pray now for tomorrow—I am not able.
Keep my heart only for today,
give me your protection today,
grant me your light—just for today.

A prayer of Saint Thérèse of Lisieux, France (1873-1897) quoted in Lyn Klug; Lyn King, All Will Be Well: A Gathering of Healing Prayers (p. 13). Kindle Edition.

Be present today; even as God is present in every moment, be present yourself in the moments, in the places, with the people you encounter today. ~Fr. Dan

Be well. Do good. Pay attention. Keep learning.
