Welcome to another round of Five Minute Friday, where bloggers from all corners of the internet gather to feverishly tap out five minutes of free writing on a given prompt each week.

If you don’t know what we’re all about, click here for more info!

This week’s prompt is:

FMF - Open


Stretch your fingers, set your timer, and let’s … GO.


Open our minds, Lord, to know your goodness. Fill us with Your truth.

Open our hearts, to feel Your love. To know Your tender mercies. Soften us to pour that same love into empty cups. Cause our hearts to beat with Yours.

Open our hands, Lord, that we might be subject to Your will. You are the potter; we are the clay. Mold us and make us, we pray.

Open our ears, Lord, that we would hear Your voice. In the roar of thunder and in the silence of freshly fallen snow. In the whisper of the wind and in hard pellets of rain. Train us to be discerning, and to obey.

Open our mouths, Lord. Make us hunger for Your righteousness. Fill us with the bread of life. Give us morsels that will sustain. Quench our thirst for You.

[Tweet ” Open our eyes, Lord, to see your beauty. Your majesty. Your power.”]

Show us your glory.
