Prayer of Illumination that I offered and saved in my days as Transitional Director of Youth and Young Adult Ministries at Welshire Presbyterian in Denver, CO
Lord who is the Word that dwelt among us and is amongst us, Open our minds and hearts and imaginations to hear you and know you in the reading of scripture today. The power of the Spirit is with us, guiding us, and we pray that it might show us a new thing. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
Dear God, May the words read here today, the words preached and the hearing of them be an act of praise, worship, focus and devotion to you. In Jesus' name we pray amen.
Dear lord, May the words we read, and the thoughts they bring, be our offering of praise, understanding and prayer to you this morning. Amen.
