One needs to be open to believing in more than what is evident to catch the spark of faith. God is always milling to kindle a fire of belief in the heart of a person with an open mind.

How willing am I to take a second look at who I am and what I believe? Am I ready to give the benefit of the doubt to something broader and deeper than myself?

O Gracious god, stretch my mind and heart beyond myself. May I not be satisfied only with what I think I know and believe. Grant me the clarity of vision.
