A Prayer

Oh mystery of Christ. God incarnate. Flesh and blood.

Comes to us today, in the everyday. The ordinary.

Open our eyes that we may see. Open our ears that we may hear. Open our hearts that we may receive.

In the eyes of the elderly. In the smile of a child. In the laughter of a friend.

To see with the eyes of Christ. To hear with the ears of God.

Not far away.

God with us.

Remove the blinders of our selfish desire and shine the light of truth into our hearts and minds. Free our souls.

Liberate us from the shackles and chains of our own doing.

Bestow upon us your grace.

Lead us into the light.

Bless us with your love.

Even so, come Lord Jesus.

Amen.
