"Lord, teach me to
be patient-with life, with people, and with myself. I sometimes try to hurry
things along too much, and I push for answers before the time is right. Teach
me to trust your sense of timing rather than my own and to surrender my will to
Your greater and wiser plan. Help me let life unfold slowly, like the small
rosebud whose petals unravel bit by bit, and remind me that in hurrying the
bloom along, I destroy the bud and much of the beauty therein. Instead, let me wait for all to unfold in its own time. Each moment and state
of growth contains loveliness. Teach me to slow down enough to appreciate life
and all it holds. Amen."
