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 Philemon 4-7)
God of extravagant grace,
may your Spirit refresh our hearts
through the reading of the scriptures
that we may perceive all the good we can do for Christ
and so grow in our faith toward our Lord Jesus. Amen.
