Busy and healthy, enjoying life, I hardly think of You, My Lord. This bothers me; it makes me sad that only when I need You do I try to be with You, to talk with You, worship You, protest my loyalty. I am ashamed of this estrangement. I need a time each day for consecrated thanks and praise to You, my God, my love, my life. I fill the days with trivialities and willingly forget You. I must live with You now, this moment. I must pray and worship and serve, become familiar with You, Lord, as You will let me be. You give me everything. Never leave me an agonizing loneliness apart from You. Amen.
My Prayer is the prayer of a person who realizes that busyness is interfering with a relationship with God.
