Before Jesus decides, he always prays.  In doing so, he models discernment for his disciples.  When make a choice, it is tempting to do so in haste.  Sometimes circumstances seem to require a reaction rather than a response.  Discernment makes a difference.

O Lord, grant me the patience to pray before acting.  May I have the courage to ask for a moment and to discern your will in all that I say and do.
