Reflection: Slow me down Lord

Slow me down Lord


Slow me down Lord.

Ease the pounding of my heart by the quieting of my mind.

Steady me with the vision of the eternal reach of time.

Give me, amid the confusion of my days

the calmness of the everlasting hills.

Break the tension of my nerves

with the soothing of the streams.


Help me to know the restoring power of sleep.

Teach me the art of taking one-minute holidays.

Slow me down to look at a flower;

to chat with a friend,

to read a few lines from a book.


Slow me down Lord.

Slow me down.

Slow me down.
