Since hearing loss has made it hard to give ears to my iPhone alarm, I bought an alarm clock at Dollar Tree during our recent House of Bishops retreat and left it behind in my room at Camp McDowell in Alabama.

Give ear to our prayers, O Lord, and direct the way of your servants in safety under your protection, that, amid all the changes of our earthly pilgrimage, we may be guarded by your mighty aid; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

— Book of Common Prayer
