Prayer to our merciful God

O merciful and loving God:

Open my lips that I may speak your praise,

Open my eyes that I may see your Face,

Open my ears that I may hear your Voice,

Open my mind that I may know You,

Open my heart that I may love You for all eternity.

Take all that I am and lead me in the path that You have prepared for me.

I ask this through my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen.
