Sharing Our Faith Together

Compassionate Listening

Give unto us, O Lord, that quietness of mind in which we can hear you speaking to us, for your own name’s sake. 

Lord, you have taught us in your word that there is a time to speak and a time to keep silence.

As we thank you for the powers of speech, we pray for the grace of silence.
Make us as ready to listen as we are to talk. Ready to listen to your voice in the quietness of our hearts and ready to listen to other people who need a sympathetic ear.

Show us when to open our ears and when to hold our peace that we may glorify thee both in speech and in silence.

Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
