O God Almighty, open our eyes to your wonders, and open our mouths to speak your praise. O Christ, you opened your arms to embrace the world from the heights of the cross: may we be drawn into your embrace. Open our minds to your wisdom, that we may walk on paths of righteousness and justice. Open our hearts to receive your words, and allow them to take root in our hearts. Open the clenched fists we nurture that we may let go of fear and hatred and join hands with our brothers and sisters to seek peace.
O God, your Mercy is as vast as the night sky, yet your love shines as the noonday Sun: hear our prayers we offer before You.
