Opening Prayer for Sermon

In the silence of the stars,
In the quiet of the hills,
In the heaving of the sea,
Speak, Lord.

In the voice of a friend,
In the chatter of a child,
In the words of a stranger,
Speak, Lord.

In the stillness of this room,
In the calming of our minds,
In the longing of our hearts,
Speak, Lord.

In this our service of word & sacrament,
Speak, Lord, for your servants listen. Amen.
[adapted from a prayer by David Adam]
