Open

New PageGod,

Open my eyes to see those things in my life that need Your attention. Those things that cloud my vision and block my perspective. Open my eyes to agree with You about what is grievous to You in my life, home, my city, my country, the world.

Open my ears to hear hurt more tenderly when it exudes from those whose path I cross. Open my ears to hear good things genuinely spoken and receive them as the gifts they were intended.

Open my mouth to speak truth rather than skirting around hard issues. May my words be filled with grace and goodness, even in the speaking. Open my mouth to share the fruit of Your Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23).

Open my hands to share what I have with those in need rather than grasping tight-fisted to something that won’t be going with me when I come to see You one day.

Open my spirit, soul, and body to the discipline I need in all things.

Thank You for opening my heart to receive Your Gospel call when I was 14.

Amen.

(I finally opened up my laptop to write with others today sharing unedited thoughts on one word in five minutes. My, how time flies!)

  1. I love all of your prayer for openness in different areas of your life. My favorite one was, “Open my ears to hear hurt more tenderly when it exudes from those whose path I cross. ” WOW! Thanks for sharing!
