Prayer for an Open Heart

One of the most important aspects of prayer is actually starting!  We need to open our hearts to God’s presence and really want to be with him.  Hopefully this little prayer helps.

Lord, touch my heart.  Touch me so that I may feel you in faith though my emotions remain dry.  I know you brought water from the rock, but have you ever dealt with a heart like mine?  Touch, breathe, sing life into this stone I carry in my chest!  Awaken the heart that sleeps.  I have witnessed your miracles and so I know that all things are possible for you.  Stretch out your hand and cure my blindness.  Reach out and shape flesh on these dry bones, lifeless without you.  Let me see your face, and I shall be saved.

As I live out my consecration to God and preparation for the priesthood, I am convinced in the power of the 'way of beauty' mentioned by Pope Francis in Evangelii Gaudium n. 167. To learn to see beauty as an expression of God in all things helps us to fall deeper in love with him. And there is no better way to give the faith than inviting others to experience its beauty.
