God, you who listen
so completely and so well,
help me listen today,
listen slowly and openly.
Help me hear your voice in the silence,
hear the hear the whisper of grace unfolding,
hear your Spirit moving in its dance
that does not disturb its deep silence.
Beneath the roar and chatter may I hear you.
May I speak in a way that does not disturb my hearing.
Speak, Holy One, for your servant is listening.
