Discovering God's Kingdom – Growing the Church

Saturday 6 June

For those who just can’t wait to be so busy once again this is a prayer based on Psalm 23 for Busy People – written by Toki Miyashina, a Japanese Woman

The Lord is my pace-setter.  I shall not rush.
He makes me stop and rest for quiet intervals.
He provides me with images of stillness which restore my serenity.
He leads me in the way of efficiency through calmness of mind,
And his guidance is peace.
Even though I have a great many things to accomplish each day
I will not fret for His presence is here.
His timelessness, His all-importance, will keep me in balance.
He prepared refreshment and renewal in the midst of activity.
By anointing my mind with his oils of tranquillity,
My cup of joyous energy overflows.
Surely harmony and effectiveness shall be the fruits of my ours.
For I shall walk in the pace of my Lord, and dwell in His house for ever,
