    O LORD, the God who saves me, day and night I cry out before you.
    —Psalm 88:1 (NIV)
    Accustom yourself gradually to carry Prayer into all your daily occupation. Speak, act, work in peace, as if you were in prayer, as indeed you ought to be.

    See also Ps. 88:1; 5:3; 55:17; Mark 11:24-25; Luke 6:12; 1 Thess. 5:17

    Lord, when my mind wanders, bring it back to You.
