Prayer for Studying Prayer

Gracious God,  You have called me to this study of relationship with You.  To teach me to worship and serve You in this world.  You have given me the call to minister to Your church.  As I prepare to learn more about communicating with You    for You,     and through You,  Open my heart, eyes, and spirit to new words,    new thoughts,    and new ways of being.  Enable me to set aside my thoughts and    to embrace your thoughts.  Set aside my goals and    to embrace your goals.  In Word brought to life,    Amen.
