Precious Savior, we turn our eyes, our hearts, and our minds to You, opening ourselves to your call in our lives. We kneel before You in love and humility, and ask that You send us to serve You and each other. Help us emerge from the valley of bitterness and doubt to trust in You as we seek to truly love each other. Tune our hearts to the song of the Spirit, and may our prayers ascend as joyful song. You, O Holy One, are the center of our being, and may all we are be drawn into the orbit of your grace and mercy. Reach out to the searching hearts of your children, O Loving One, and spread the balm of your love upon those we now name.
