Here is a prayer of illumination, spoken before the reading and preaching of the Word, from the Worship@North website.
Prayer of Illumination
through your only Son you overcame death
and opened to us the light of eternity.
Enlighten our minds and kindle our hearts
with the presence of your Spirit,
that we may hear your words of comfort and challenge
in the reading of the scriptures,
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
