Slow me down, O Lord, help me to think before I speak. Help me to reflect before I act. Help me to pray before I make plans. Slow me down, O Lord, and hold me close. May you be my first port of call. May I seek you before anything else. May your will be what I desire most. Slow me down, O Lord, that I may not rush into things on my own but wait for your timing and your leading.
