Dear Lord, give me grace to address You with my heart, as with my lips. You are everywhere present, from you no secret can be hidden. Teach me to fix my thoughts on you, with reverence and devotion, that I may not pray in vain.
Give me always a thankful sense of the blessings. Make me and all who confess Your Holy Name people of this light. Make me faithful to Your Word that I may bring Your life to the waiting world.
Incline thine ear to us, Lord, Hear our prayers. Hear our cries.
