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
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 hope it trusts me to make
all effort to find the right thought or action today.
