A prayer for discernment

Lord, we pray to receive the grace to unfold the hands of our hearts.

Lord, we pray to receive the grace to unfold the hands of our hearts.


We pray for the peace to open our right hand that we may let go of our dead works, and our left hand that we may let go of our senses.


Lord, place in our right hand mercy, and in our left hand, charity. And let not our right hand know what our left hand is receiving so that we receive no understanding other than yours.


Lord, I beg of you to place the palms of our hands against your holy face, and place our fingers over your holy mouth, that they may trace your word.


O Lord, giver of life, allow our voice to echo your word. Amen.
