Lord God,
Like Jeremiah, we stammer when we have to open our mouths.
Like Jeremiah, we step aside when your Word comes upon us
and, like Elijah, we want a hollow in the rock where we can hide our face.
You know us completely and we still know you so little.
Your mystery, God, belongs to you, as do the many ways in which you come to us.
Give us this respectful prayer that does not fear the dark, but remains alert,
trusting that your Word carries within it the light of a plan of Love.
