Almighty God, open our hearts to You, that we may take in all your wisdom.
The mercy of God is like a spring of water to a thirsty soul; we repent of our headstrong ways, and seek your will.
Bend near to hear the supplications of your people; give your angels charge over those who search in darkness. Guide us in path of wisdom, love, and grace, O Wellspring: Your are our hope and the salvation of the world.
Send your healing Spirit to those who are weary in body, mind, or soul, and sustain the hope of those we now name.
