Prayers for Illumination on Words

Prayers of Confession on Words

Adapted from Psalm 19:14

May the words of my mouth.

And the meditations of each of our hearts be acceptable to you, our rock and our redeemer. Amen.

Adapted from Psalm 19:14 NRSV

Lord, God,

Let the words of my mouth and the meditations of our hearts

be acceptable to you, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer. Amen.

Draw us close, Holy Spirit, as the Scriptures are read and the Word is proclaimed. Let the word of faith be on our lips and in our hearts, and let all other words slip away. May there be one voice we hear today — the voice of truth and grace. Amen.
