Important things will happen today, O Lord, and some of them we will even realize are important when and as they happen.
Who knows what will happen that we won’t regard as important but in fact will be?
Who knows what will happen that we won’t even notice but that will nonetheless be very important?
Lord, cause us to treat each moment that we live, each task that we undertake, and each person that we encounter as important; cause us always to look for what you are doing in, through, and around us in all things.
At the same time, combine our attention to life with a deep trust in you, lest we fail to remember that all things are important because you are working your purposes out in all things.
Help us to remember that it is all too important to be left up to us at the same time that is all too important to be left alone by us.
