Genesis 50:15-26; 1 Corinthians 12:1-11; Mark 8:11-26

“Then Jesus laid his hands on his eyes again; and he looked intently and his sight was restored, and he saw everything clearly.” – Mark 8:25


This meditative poem is meant to be read as Lectio Divina. Read it once at a contemplative pace. Then read it very slowly. The third time, read one stanza followed by silence, then the next stanza followed by silence, and so on.


Lord, I have eyes.
I can see your Holiness
In all things.

I have ears.
I can hear your word
In the darkness.

I have a mouth.
I can speak the truth
And be set free.

I have hands.
I can give to the world
And make peace.

I have lungs.
I can breathe your Spirit in
And be redeemed anew.

I have a heart.
I can love your goodness
Bask in your goodness
Become your goodness.

Infuse my senses so that I
may know you in all things.
