You watch over us, Lord God, at every moment of the day, I know, even when we are not thinking of you. Help us, then, to turn to you briefly from time to time as we pause in our work. Let us not forget altogether who you are, who we are, why we are here, and that we are all, however slowly, returning to you who made us for yourself. Please teach us how to pray even when words won't come, when our spirits are heavy, and our minds tired. By the merits of Christ, our Saviour, who knew time of tiredness and lonesomeness, we ask your aid. Amen.
