Loving God, may our hearts and minds be drawn to you throughout this day. In our time alone with you, guide our minds, fill our imaginations, and control our wills so that we are aware of our growing relationship with you. As you speak to us through the Holy Scriptures today, may we listen with our spirits attuned to your Spirit. Bless us with a reverent sense of your presence so that we may worship you in all that we do this day. Through Jesus Christ our Lord we pray. Amen.
