Open our eyes — Heather Pencavel

An Opening Prayer   (might be used as the basis of a vestry prayer)

Open our eyes, ever-present God,
To see you here and now
in this place and in one another.

Open our ears, Word of Life,
To hear you speaking
in the words we hear and say and sing
and in the silence.

Open our hearts, transforming Spirit,
to change and renewal in each of us
in our lives together and our witness to the world.

Already, God of extravagant generosity,
You have opened your hands
and poured out your life for us;
open our minds to your greatness
and our lives to your service.
