Prayer #55: Frame the Focus

Is writing multiple To-Do lists and then simultaneously ignoring them considered multi-tasking?

Prayer #55: Frame the Focus

Lord, help me focus on focusing. May I read the library book I keep renewing. May I finish writing a letter before I check e-mail. May I prepare my lunch before I make dinner plans.

Help me remember that it's a physical and temporal impossibility to always be planning for the future, because then I'll never experience the present I so carefully managed.

So keep me in this moment with You -- a moment of known past and undetermined future, where calendars reduce to planetary motion and time is but a machination.

For what we share is eternal, and You deserve -- demand -- my undivided attention.
