Be opened

         Then looking up to heaven, he sighed
         and said to him, “Ephphatha,” that is, “Be opened.”
                   —Mark 7.34

Ears, be opened,
to hear the song of God.
Eyes, be opened,
to see with love.
Heart, be opened,
to trust the blessing.
Mind, be opened,
to accept what I have not yet seen.
Lips, be opened,
to utter grace.
Heaven, be opened,
that I may be close to God.
Soul, be opened,
to receive the Beloved who is here.
People, be opened
to the miracle among you.



         Breath prayer:
                                    
Be … opened
