I need Thy sense of Order
The confusion of the details of living
Is sometimes overwhelming. The little things
Keep getting the my way providing ready-made
Excuses for failure to do and be
What I know I ought to do and be.
Much time is spent on things that are not very important
While significant things are put into an insignificant place
In my scheme of order. I must unscramble my affairs
So that my life will become order. O God, I need
Thy sense of order.
Howard Thurman, 1899 – 1981, African American civil rights leader
Conversations with God: Two Centuries of Prayers by African Americans
But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness,
and all these things will be added to you.
