The Opening Prayer

The Opening Prayer

It was probably five years ago that I came across a shorter version of what was called, The Opening Prayer. I quickly adopted it and later adapted it as a daily prayer. I miss occasionally but most days I pray this prayer, if not during my morning quiet time, some time in the day. One thing I like about it is that it is easy to memorize it. I mentally start work my way from my head to my heart. I challenged our staff to pray this prayer every day for the next year. I'm in. How about you?

Lord, open all of me to all of You.

Open my EYES to see where You are leading and join You there.

Open my MIND to receive the mind of Jesus. Renew it in Your truth.

Open my SPIRIT to receive Your Phil 2 Spirit, fill me to overflowing with the Holy Spirit.

Open my HEART to become one with Your heart, give me a heart like Yours.

Open my EARS to hear your voice and lead me with Your promptings.

Open my MOUTH to speak Your words, Your prayers, Your praise and Your witness

Lord, live in me and through me today.

Amen
