I have a pocket prayer to share! I have many, but I'll share the one I have set up in my office. I keep it tucked out of the way, so mostly only I see it. The shrine is a constant reminder of how I end my daily prayers. Often I'll say this portion when I get to work:

*****
I am grounded in the here and now
I am grounded in the here and now
I am grounded in the here and now

May every word and every breath open my heart so Shekhinah may flow through me, so my actions are more aligned with the life I want to live

May every word and every breath open my heart so Shekhinah may flow through me, so I am better able to do the work I am called to do

May every word and every breath open my heart so Shekhinah may flow through me, so I honor and cherish the Divine in all that I meet through the day

May every word and every breath open my heart so Shekhinah may flow through me, so I may see the Divine light illuminating the path before me

amen
******

I suppose in a way, this prayer is a pocket prayer in itself, since I keep it on Google docs (http://docs.google.com/View?id=dhq23dsp_2789f4c7hp) and can access from anywhere including my blackberry. The shrine has Kohenet bumper sticker to remind me that even being a marketing strategist is a job for a priestess, and an prayer bag/amulet that I made during one of my Kohenet training sessions. The bag contains many little objects that reinforce the message of the prayer.

Everything thing I do is an expression of the Divine flowing through me. I just need to be reminded of that. Sometimes, I need a lot of reminders of that. :)
