A Prayer To Be Attentive To God's Commands Dear Heavenly Father, Let us see clearly your rules for living. Let us study the wisdom and depth of your words to humanity. Let us obey not our own instincts but let us obey your rules and commands for life. Show us the way of disobedience is the way to death. Show us the way of obedience is the way to life. Open our hearts to your love and within your love open our minds to your truth. Open our eyes so we can see that you, O Christ, died for us because we had fallen and was covered with shame. Open our minds to your beauty in thought, your beauty in the world, and your beauty within each person. When the clouds of sin and corruption cover over your light, show us your commands and your truth bring light to our souls and joy to our hearts. All these things we humbly pray in the name of Jesus Christ and the Holy spirit who lives within us and touches us. Amen and Amen.
