road to mountainA Prayer to Hear and See

For this reason you are great, O Lord God; for there is none like you, and there is no God besides you, according to all that we have heard with our ears. (2 Samuel 7:22)

Good and generous God, you are quick to give us every opportunity to amend our ways, to make the most out of our life’s path.

He who has ears to hear, let him hear. (Matthew 11:15)

Faithful and ever-present God, you are available and open to us in every moment of every day, in every step of our journey’s path.

Lift up your eyes round about and see. (Isaiah 60:4)

Bold and powerful God, you abide with us everywhere in every way, at each curve of the trail, at each hill, in each valley.

Then again Jesus laid his hands on [the blind man’s] eyes; and he looked intently and was restored, and began to see everything clearly. (Mark 8:25)

Serene and peaceful God, we sometimes create idols to worship as we wander along life’s path.

[We create idols who] have mouths, but they do not speak; they have eyes, but they do not see; they have ears, but they do not hear, nor is there any breath at all in their mouths. Those who make them will be like them, yes, everyone who trusts in them. (Psalm 135:16-18)

pathway between treesKind and loving God, we need constant reminders to remain always in you. As our journey winds and rolls through obstacles, keep us close to you. As our journey brings us both fear and delight, keep us ever in you. As our journey moves inexorably toward you, keep our ears and eyes open that we might hear your word and see your light. We ask this as always in Jesus’ name. Amen.
