Opening Prayer

Awesome Holy God, You blind me! The vision of Your transcendence makes my spirit soar and burns deep within me. You touch my heart as You purify my lips. Help me to speak Your Word. As far beyond us as You are, You are deep within. You know me from the inside out. You are the light who reveals the darkness and shows us the way. In darkness, you reveal light. Calm us in the dark, frightening times, that we can hear You. Reveal to us again how intimate You are, even though You are transcendently beyond. The mystery of You within and beyond is awesome. Thank you for choosing me to speak Your Word and share Your message. “Here I am. Send me!”
