It's the prayer I say before every Eucharist with the participants before we go in.
I used it to end my sermon today at St. Andrews.
And I say it to myself several times a day.
It goes like this:
GOD, OPEN MY HEART TO RECEIVE YOUR LOVE.
OPEN MY MIND TO RECEIVE YOUR TRUTH.
OPEN MY LIFE TO DO YOUR WORK IN THE WORLD.
I'm not sure what else I would pray for.
So, I'm sticking with it.
I seldom suggest that you 'do something', but I do urge you to ponder using this as your prayer.
"God, open my heart to receive your love. Open my mind to receive your truth. Open my life to do your work in the world."
Give it a try. It works or me.
