Father, as I write, help me to pay attention –
*to Your word in Scripture and the happenings of each day.
*to my own heart and life.
*to those closest to me.
*to thoughts and words Your Spirit brings to surface.
*help me to weave together the cord that is there.
*free me from anxious thoughts.
*let me abide in You, Your words in me.
*teach me to listen.
*and in all to hallow Your name.
