Leader: But my eyes are fixed on you, Sovereign Lord;

Leader: The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all.
People: And also with you.
Leader: You will do well to attend to the message of the prophets, because it is like a lamp shining in a murky place.
People: We will attend to the message of the prophets, until the day breaks and the morning star rises to illuminate our minds.
PRAYER OF INVOCATION
Eternal God, we listen for your voice in the message of the prophets and apostles, in the music of reverence, and the prayers of your people. Dawn again in our minds so that we may walk in your light today and through the days to come; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
