Opening Prayer

Jesus, we believe that You have come and will come again in fullness at the end of days. We who live in between should be affected by Your presence, past, present and future. Transform our lives and values so that we are not left to simply fulfill our human needs and emptiness. Make us children of the dawn of the end of days, who live in hope. Help us progress to Your kingdom by the way we treat each other. Keep us rooted in Your ancient core truths and empowered by Your restless Spirit. Keep us faithful to the past, without deifying it, even as we try to create Your future. Your love is our law, Lord Jesus! Your presence is our truth!
