Today's prayer

"Why, O Lord, is it so hard for me to keep my heart directed toward you?
Why does my mind wander off in so many directions,
and why does my heart desire the things that lead me astray?

Let me sense your presence in the midst of my turmoil.
Take my tired body,
my confused mind,
and my restless soul
into your arms
and give me rest—simple, quiet rest."
from Show Me the Way
by Henri Nouwen

a recommendation by
A Circle of Quiet
