God of yesterday, today and tomorrow,
we call to mind your presence within us and around us.
Open our ears that we may hear your Word.
Open our hearts that we may understand your Word.
Open our mouths that we may speak your Word.
Inspire us with Your Gospel message,
that we may celebrate all that is life-giving,
restore hope where it has been lost, and work to bring
about change where it is needed.
May we make your love known through our words and actions.
May You reign in our hearts, now and forever.
