Breath of Life
Take a moment to refresh, refocus, and refine your faith.
Lord, thank you for reminders to breathe, to just take a moment and feel this grace-filled air revive my body and give me the strength to take one moment at a time. With each inhalation, I recognize how every second is a gift and opportunity to return the praise you deserve. With each exhalation, help me remember how dependent I am upon you for my very existence. No next breath is guaranteed, so it is my responsibility and privilege to live well in your name. As I move forward through the next hours, days, and hopefully years, Father, help me not take my life and your merciful hand upon it for granted. Amen.
The Spirit of God hath made me, and the breath of the Almighty hath given me life.
And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.
Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.
