Prayer for Saturday

Nature is pleased with simplicity.
And nature is no dummy.
~ Isaac Newton

Just For Today

Lord, for tomorrow and its needs, I do not pray;
Keep me, my God, from stain and sin,
Just for today.

Let me both diligently work and duly pray.
Let me be kind in word and deed,
Just for today.

Let me be slow to do my will, prompt to obey;
Help me sacrifice myself,
Just for today

And if today my tide of life should ebb away;
Give me thy Sacraments divine,
Sweet Lord, today.

So for tomorrow and its need I do not pray,
But keep me, guide me, love me, Lord,
Just for today.

(from Saint Augustine’s Prayer Book:
A Book of Devotions for Members of the Episcopal Church,
Loren Gavitt, editor)
