Today I humbly ask my Higher Power
For the grace to find the space between my impulse and my action;
To let flow a cooling breeze when I would respond with heat;
To interrupt fierceness with gentle peace;
To accept the moment which allows judgment to become discernment;
To defer to silence when my tongue would rush to attack or defend.
I promise to watch for every opportunity to turn toward my Higher Power for guidance.
I know where this power is; it resides within me, as clear as a mountain brook, hidden in the hills- it is the unsuspected Inner Resource.
I thank my Higher Power for this world of light and truth.
I see when I allow it to direct my vision.
I trust it today and believe it trusts me to make all efforts to find the right thought and action today.
