Prayer: A Listening Ear

Pay attention to how you listen, my child.

Grant a listening ear in good times, as well as in confusing times. May I bend my ear toward You so that I may hear Your heavenly Voice above the din of the world.

Incline not only your ear, but open your eyes. Can you believe, even when you cannot see?

I see that You have always given provisions for my journey. May I continue to trust You on the Way.

Come to Me, so I can give you not just the good, but the best.

Create, O God, a remembrance of Your steadfast love to which I may hold fast in times of difficulty.

Hear the Word, hold it fast in an honest and good heart and bear fruit with patience. Pay attention to how you listen; for to those who have, more will be given.
