The Beginning

Lord open my senses
( At every + make a small Sign of the Cross at the place indicated)
+Lord open my lips,
So that my mouth may proclaim your praise.
+ Lord open my eyes,
so that I may see your works and human needs.
+ Lord open my ears,
So that I may hear your word and the cry of the poor.
+ Lord open my nose,
So that I can distinguish what is alive from what is dead.
+ Lord open my understanding,
So that I may understand you and your word.
+ Lord open my heart,
So that I may make room for you and seek and find you in all things.
+ Lord open my hands,
So that I may receive from you and cheerfully give to people. Amen.
