a prayer for illumination

Lord of light,
at this very minute,
our minds are clouded by all sorts of things.
When we try to listen for your Word,
it feels like trying to read in a dark room.

Holy Spirit, come to us with light.
Banish the darkness from our minds, hearts, spirits.
Make the words of Scripture and of the sermon clear to us,
the way the sun illuminates the dawn.

Amen.
