Opening Prayer: 1 Kings 19

Here’s an opening prayer of invocation inspired by Elijah’s encounter with God at Mount Sinai.  It comes from My Redeemer Lives website.

Prayer of Invocation
(1 Kings 19: 8-15)

Like Elijah, O God, we turn and face You in the midst of the storm.
Help us this hour to hear You speak to us —
not in the wind, or the thunder,
nor even in the upheaval of the ground beneath us.
Help us to hear You speak to us, in our heart of hearts,
as that still, small voice amidst the maelstrom,
which gives us direction, and peace, and hope.
We pray in Jesus' name. Amen.
