Dear God, as You gave us the sun to lighten our days, so you have given us your Word to lighten our minds and our souls. I pray that you will pour out on me your Spirit as I pray today. Let my heart and mind may be opened to your Word, and that I may learn and accept your will for my life.
Shine within my heart, loving God, the pure light of your divine knowledge. Open the eyes of my mind and the ears of my heart to receive Your Word, this day and always. You alone are God, and do not change; and because of this, we may hope to be preserved.
Bless us and keep us, Lord. Make Your face shine upon us, and be gracious unto us. Lift up Your countenance upon us, and give us peace, this day and evermore.
