Ever-living God, in Jesus you grant us our heart’s desire. With trust we pray: Help us to listen, O God. 

Open our minds and hearts to the Scriptures.  

     Help us to listen, O God. 

Advance efforts to instruct your Church about the riches of the Mass.  

     Help us to listen, O God. 

Sensitize us to the suffering of the poor, the marginalized, and the illiterate. 

     Help us to listen, O God. 

Our Father . . . 

May the Word of God be a lamp for our steps and a light for our path, now and always. Amen.
