Track the meanings of all our unwritten words. Hear our untold stories. Hold them gently. Keep them in front of us.

Make sense, especially when we can’t, of why writing, speaking, and listening matter. Enable us to hear ourselves. Enable us to attend to our own words, to choose our selves.

Make us unafraid of words, to you and to others. May we be patient with what we hear. May we make judgments slowly and carefully.

Help us to imagine words used well. Help us to use them well today. Amen.
