Most Holy God.
You are always with me wherever I have to go.
You see me when I leave home and when I return.
Yet in between, there are moments when I need you.
Rushed, hurried, trying to beat the clock,
cars in front of me at a standstill.
I’m angry and agitated and impatient.
Grant me a heart that remembers there are people in each car.
Not dispensable, but a human life.
Each passenger has a story you have written.
As I’m trapped behind a door,
Let me open my window
To consider the beauty and lives around me.
Let me open my window to see your creation – birds, trees, the wind, the sunsets.
In the midst of the hustle and bustle may I find peace.
May I use this time to grow closer to you.
