God of truth, you who said to us,
“If today you hear my voice,
harden not your hearts,”
we pray to you at the beginning of this day.
You who speak to us through the marvels of creation
which you give us for our joy,
open our eyes that we may recognize therein
the trace of your steps.
You who speak to us through today’s happenings,
make us attentive so as to discern your holy will
in each of our joys and our pains.
You who speak to us through our brothers,
help us to discover your face
in the face of those who surround us.
