Lord, open our eyes that we may see you working behind the scenes of our lives as you move and rearrange the props that can help or hinder us. Open our hands so that we may share generously the gifts you have provided. Open our mouths to speak on behalf of hose who cannot speak for themselves. Open our minds to receive new ideas, concepts or innovations. Open our hearts to love our neighbor, each other and ourselves better today than yesterday. Open our doors to new realities and at the same time give us courage to reach for things ...the evidence of things we hope for, the evidence of things unseen. As qe dig deeper into you word, may your word dig deeper into our lives. In Jesus name, Amen.
