prayer keys: live the moment fully

“Be Thou my vision, O Lord of my heart. Naught be all else to me, save that Thou art.”   – 6th century Celtic poem, set to an Irish pub song in the 1800s

“In His presence, live a moment at a time: live that moment fully. To try to live a holy life is to be crushed by the enormity of the task, but a whole life consists of a series of such moments…

Focus your gaze, and then, when the arrow of your attention is released, it will hit the mark and find Him.  The aim: Him. The glory: His.”

– Amund Karner, Celtic Daily Prayer
