I Have Only Today (Prayer)

This is one of my favorite prayers and one that was brought to my attention again today.

My life is an instant,
An hour which passes by;
My life is a moment
Which I have no power to stay.
You know, O my God,
That to love you here on Earth–
I have only today.

-Prayer from Therese of Lisieux
