Prayer to be a Better Listener
L. "Let every person be quick to hear,
R. but slow to speak..." (James 1 :19)
Jesus our Savior, to those who listened to your message of God's love and mercy and accepted it in their hearts you were able to bring salvation.
Grant that we too may be good listeners of your message. Let the scripture readings we hear at Mass or read in the bible touch our spirits and move our hearts to be your faithful followers.
Help us also to be people who listen well to others as they share their thoughts and ideas with us. By giving them our full attention may they feel that they have a friend who truly cares about their worries and concerns, and may we in turn come to a better understanding of the their needs.
May we always take the words of St. James to heart and learn to be people quick to hear and slow to speak so that we may be less concerned about ourselves but more responsive to others. We ask this in your name. Amen
Lord Jesus Christ
you have taught us to be merciful like the heavenly Father, and have told us that whoever sees you sees Him.
Show us your face and we will be saved.
Your loving gaze freed Zacchaeus and Matthew from being enslaved by money;
the adulteress and Magdalene from seeking happiness only in created things;
made Peter weep after his betrayal,
and assured Paradise to the repentant thief.
Let us hear, as if addressed to each one of us, the words that you spoke to the Samaritan woman:
“If you knew the gift of God!”
You are the visible face of the invisible Father,
of the God who manifests his power above all by forgiveness and mercy:
let the Church be your visible face in the world, its Lord risen and glorified.
You willed that your ministers would also be clothed in weakness
in order that they may feel compassion for those in ignorance and error:
let everyone who approaches them feel sought after, loved, and forgiven by God.
Send your Spirit and consecrate every one of us with its anointing, so that the Jubilee of Mercy may be a year of grace from the Lord, and your Church, with renewed enthusiasm, may bring good news to the poor, proclaim liberty to captives and the oppressed,
and restore sight to the blind.
We ask this of you, Lord Jesus, through the intercession of Mary, Mother of Mercy; you who live and reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit for ever and ever. Amen.
Have you ever found yourself in the middle of a conversation just itching for the other person to stop talking so that you can jump in and say what's on your mind?
We all do this - which often means we really aren't listening to the other person, but just waiting for an opportunity to speak so that we can have our ideas made known.
Good listeners, on the other hand, do precisely what they're supposed to do - listen; they give their full attention to what the other person is saying. That means they give them full eye contact; put down whatever they are working on, and do not interrupt. They just LISTEN.
That's not always as easy to do as it might sound. I wonder how we would feel if, when we prayed, God didn't pay much attention to us?
This month we ask God to help us be people who truly listen when others are speaking.
