I call upon your name, O Lord Jesus Christ.
Hear the prayer of your servant!
My eyes are heavy from sleep.
Open them with haste,
That I might be awake for worship.
My eyes are clouded by my judgment,
Shaped by my earthly desires and my sinful inclinations.
Clear my vision,
So that I will see with clarity your will.
My eyes are jaded from my experience.
I judge others before I know them.
Be the lens through which I see the world;
Let me see others as you do,
So I may treat them as you would.
I want to see;
I want to see you, my Lord.
Open my heart,
And I will see you in every one I encounter.
I will love them as I love you.
May it be so.
