Acute Hearing

Father God,

We praise and thank you for the amazing ways in which you communicate with us. We thank you for choosing to speak in the way that is best suited to us as individuals.

We are sorry for the times when we have been deaf to your voice, or have chosen to have selective hearing and heard only what we have wanted to hear.

Thank you for the wisdom and discernment of others who help us to understand just what it is you are saying to us and guide us in our response.

We pray that, not only might we hear and respond to you, but that we might also hear and respond to the voice of pain that cries out from our broken world.

We pray this prayer in the beautiful and powerful name of Jesus.
