Here is a prayer of illumination, spoken before the reading and preaching of the Word, from the Worship@North website.
Prayer of Illumination
O Wisdom Divine,
just as you inspired the mothers of our faith
grant us your knowledge and discernment
so that we can learn how to be
clever in our compassion
and courageous in our faith,
through Christ and in the Spirit. Amen.
