illumination: heart of all things

O Lord, your Word sees to the heart of all things
and speaks the truth of your blessing into every life.
As we listen to these words of scripture,
may we hear your everlasting Word
calling us to share your healing and reconciliation with all people.
We pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.

illumination: living and active

Almighty God,
your Word is living and active,
and the stories of our lives bear witness to your Good News.
We thank you for these words, of scripture and testimony.
Open us to hear your voice within these words,
and guide us as we respond in faith.
We pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.
