Opening your Word, O Lord, we pray you would open us. Open our ears to hear, our minds to see, and our hearts to receive your word to us this day, through the Word made flesh we pray. Amen. (provided by Joe Clifford)

Loving God, still my mind, calm my heart, open my eyes to see your word more clearly that I may come to find you in the world among me. Amen. (provided by John Magnuson)

O Lord, as I read, may the words of scripture read me. Read my life and shape it according to your will. Amen. (provided by Millie Snyder)

Ever-present God, fill this time with your Spirit. Minimize my distractions so that I am open to hear your holy Word. Amen.

O God,
let something essential happen to me,
something more than interesting
or entertaining,
or thoughtful.
May your word be meaningful,
and powerful,
and tender.
Let something essential happen to me.
O God,
let something essential happen to me,
something awesome,
something real.
Speak to my condition, Lord,
and change me somewhere inside where it matters,
a change that will burn and tremble and heal
and explode me into tears
or laughter or love that throbs or screams
or keeps its terrible, cleansing silence
and dares the dangerous deeds.
Let something happen in me which is my real self, God.
