Lord, help me today to realize that you will be speaking to me through the events of the day, through people, through things, and through all creation.
Give me ears, eyes and heart to perceive you, however veiled your presence may be.
Give me insight to see through the exterior of things to the interior truth.
Give me your Spirit of discernment.
O Lord, you know how busy I must be this day.
If I forget you, do not forget me.
Jacob Astley (1579-1652)
