Alan Cohen begins his morning reflection for today with an anonymous, well-known adage that says: Anyone who is too busy to pray is too busy. He ends with a prayer that addresses God directly and with a similarly clear message. I think this “twinning” of thoughts is appropriate and sufficient for today. I call us each to offer this prayer and in so doing to connect us to this circle of humanity for the good of all.
You are my first priority. Knowing you makes all the difference in my life and my world. Knowing you is knowing myself. Be with me today, that I may be with you always.
