Eyes to See

Eyes to See Matthew 13:14-17

Days pass, and the years vanish,

and we walk sightless among the miracles.

Lord, fill our eyes with seeing

and our minds with knowing.

Let there be moments when your Presence,

like lightning, illumines the darkness

in which we walk.

Help us to see wherever we gaze

that the bush burns unconsumed.

And we, clay touched by God, will reach out

for holiness, and exclaim in wonder:

“How filled with awe is this place,

and we did not know it!

Blessed is the Eternal One, the holy God!”

–from The Hebrew Book of Prayer

Let us not be like those who...

...have eyes to see but don’t perceive;

...have ears to hear but don’t listen;

...have fingers to touch but never feel;

...have tongues to taste but don’t savor;

...have noses to smell but never enjoy;

...have minds to know but don’t comprehend;

...have hearts to wonder but never consider;

...have lips to praise but never glorify.
