Opening Prayer

Your covenant is the deepest source of life for us, Holy God. Continue to write it on our hearts that we may respond to You with wholehearted love. It moves my soul that You have espoused Yourself to us. As You embrace us as Your people, give us the faith of Peter, who wholeheartedly responds to Your revelation, so that we recognize Jesus as Your gift and revelation to us. Keep us faithful to following Jesus and his teachings, and help us not to fear when walking in his footsteps is challenging and threatening to us. Be our strength and source of life this day, God of the Covenant.
