Audio for today's pause for prayer
Open my eyes today, Lord!
Make my vision clear and sharp enough
to see the simplest wonders all around me,
the ones I miss when I'm so harried
that I hurry past the beauty on my path...
Help me see the hidden burdens carried
by those whose paths cross mine
and show me any way that I might help
to bear their worries and their sorrows...
Correct my vision, Lord,
when it's fuzzy and unfocused,
when I miss the details you provide
to guide me on the path you'd have me walk...
Help me see what's up ahead of me
and see what's right in front of me
and help me see and read whatever signs
you post to help me find my way...
Help me see my neighbor with your eyes,
and help me see myself as you see me;
light my vision with your Spirit's wisdom,
give me eyes that peer into the human heart...
Open my eyes today, Lord: help me see what I miss
at my first and hasty glance;
teach me to look and look again until I see the beauty
of all this day might bring...
