Breathe Deeply

I have this book of prayers that I absolutely love. Every prayer really speaks to me and helps me put into words some of the thoughts and feelings I have. I am so blessed to have this book and I would highly recommend it to everyone. It is called 'Guerrillas  of Grace' by Ted Loder. 

I Need to Breathe Deeply
(Ted Loder - Guerrillas of Grace)

Eternal Friend,
grant me an ease
to breathe deeply of this moment,
this light,
this miracle of now.
Beneath the din and fury
of great movements
and harsh news
and urgent crises,
make me attentive still
to good news,
to small occasions,
and the grace of what is possible
for me to be,
to do,
to give,
to receive,
that I may miss neither my neighbor’s gift
nor my enemy’s need.
