Here is a prayer of illumination, spoken before the reading and preaching of the Word, from the Worship@North website.
Prayer of Illumination
(inspired by Luke 24)
Jesus our Guide,
you explained the scriptures
and revealed yourself to the disciples at Emmaus.
Now, by your Spirit,
enlighten our minds to understand their witness
and ignite our hearts to receive you at the table. Amen.
