Try to take a few minutes to be alone somewhere. Take even three minutes to pause. Placing yourself in the presence of God and praying this prayer will make a difference:
Most glorious God,
As I pause in the midst of this day,
I invite You into this moment of prayer.
I ask Your pardon for any way that I have failed to love today.
For my pride, envy, gluttony, greed, lust, sloth and anger,
I beg for Your forgiveness.
Once again, I dedicate this day to You.
I pray for humility, kindness, temperance, charity, chastity, diligence and patience.
Help me, Lord, to listen to Your gentle voice
and to trust in Your guidance and grace.
My life is Yours, dear Lord.
My life is Yours.
May I hold nothing back from You.
May I fulfill my duties this day in accord with Your perfect will.
I love You, dear Lord.
I love You with all my heart.
Help me to love You and others with all my might.
