Recently, I came across this translation of Psalm 90…a reminder for me of how I fit in the context of this world, and a prayer that gives me clarity when reflecting on my purpose.
Teach us how short our time is;
Let us know it in the depth of our souls.
Fill us in the morning with your wisdom;
Shine through us all our lives.
Let our hearts soon grow transparent in the radiance of your love.
Show us how precious each day is; teach us to be fully here.
And let the work of our hands prosper, for our little while.
