Prayer of the Christian Opening the Word


May that power by which 

       the worlds were created, 

       the storm was stilled 

       and the dead were raised 

be at work in me as I read your word today.

       Remake me, 

       calm me, 

       heal me, 

       raise me

That I might live for Jesus.
