Opening Prayer: Hear God's Whisper

Here is an opening prayer inspired by 1 Kings 19:11-13. It was posted on The Minor Key blog. Although it was written in a responsive style, it could also be offered in one voice. 

Opening Prayer
(inspired by 1 Kings 19:11-13)

So often, we expect life to wow and dazzle us.
But God, you often come in the still, the small, and the meek.

So when we're overloaded by constant stimulus and marketing ...
... we pray that you'd settle us with the unforced rhythms of grace.

When our hearts are dried up by apathy and cynicism ...
... we pray that you would open up the wellspring of your mercy.

God, we are seeking you in hopeful expectation.
You are trustworthy and good. 
For this, we give you thanks. Amen.
