Living in the Now Moment

Dear God,

If I discover how to live consistently in the present moment, all of my life will smooth out—because this is the way You intended me to live.  If I need to weave plans for the future, guidance from You will let me know to do so at the appropriate time.  My Inner Wisdom will then kick in, and Inner Wisdom comes from deep within, where You reside.

Living in the Now takes practice.  I intend to live, mindfully, in the gift of the present today—practicing with patience, not chastising myself when I fall short.

Be with me as I seek to carry out these optimal ways of being.

Amen.

Happiness

Dear God,

Thank You that so far this morning I have been able to stay “in the moment,” a secret to good living.  Present moment thinking prepares me for a good day.  And it is the secret to happiness.

Thank You for being so close to me.  I can feel Your presence, and that is a very great blessing.

Amen.
