Opening Prayer

Healing God, Trusting Father, like Miriam and Aaron, sometimes we do not listen to Your prophets, as they speak Your challenging truth. Help us to believe the truth You speak. Help us discern Your prophets this day who speak of Your Kingdom and promise. Enable us to listen to dreams and visions. Empower us to listen to You. As You worked signs and wonders to validate both Moses and Jesus, help us to believe more deeply. Help us to trust the healing and freeing power of Jesus – to surrender our hurts, disappointments and darkness into His healing hand. When the waters of our life feel treacherous, help us to experience Jesus walking on them and through them to us.
