A Prayer for Spiritual Hearing

May my ears be attuned to Your voice, Lord.
  Like sheep know the voice of their shepherd,
  like children know the voice of their parent,
so may my ears be attuned to Your voice.

May my ears hear Your praise in creation, Lord.
  In the songs of Springtime chirping birds,
  in the winds that greet the break of dawn,
may my ears hear Your praise in creation.

May my soul hear the stirring of Your Spirit, Lord.
  Beyond the ragings, shakings, and rising fears,
  give my soul the ears to hear Your still, small voice.
May my soul hear the stirring of Your Spirit, Lord.

May my ears hear You in those around me, Lord.
  Give me grace to hear every other person’s voice
  as one who is made in Your image, my God.
May my ears hear You in those around me.

May I hear You calling me on my final day, Lord.
  When my last day day ordained arrives in time
  and You draw near to bring me to Your side,
may I hear You calling me on my final day.
