Let us pray that God’s Spirit opens us to all that is good:
God our Father, you wait for us to be open to you, to people, and to all that is true, beautiful and good.
May your Spirit open our ears to the liberating Word of your Son.
Open our hearts and hands to everyone who needs us.
Open our lips so that we proclaim everywhere the marvels you do for us.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
