Opening Prayer

Tenacious, Wholehearted One, thank you for Jesus. Even as You trust us with Your Word, we are grateful that Your Word is more powerful and enduring than we are. We are giving our best efforts – sometimes we are not enough. Humble us to rely on the power of Christ, so that we can die and sacrifice and reign with him. Give us Your wholeheartedness that we can love You and one another with our whole heart, soul, mind, and strength. Embrace us with the heart of Your Law and the power of Your Spirit that we can be like You and help create Your reign of justice, love and peace!
