Opening Prayer

Risen Lord, your presence takes our breath away! Your breath overcomes our fears. Your breath evokes peace in our troubled souls. Your breath calms our disbelief. Thank you for giving us the keys to God’s heart and Your Kingdom. Your trust is awesome!

Sometimes, like Thomas, we need physical proof. I’m sorry for the times I doubt and live only from the breath of my needs. Give us the trusting faith of the early community that shared their goods, rather than hoarding our riches. You have conquered all and your breath is God’s love inSpiriting us. Your Risen presence takes our breath away, so that we can live from the divine creative breath. InSpirit us with peace, Risen Jesus!!!
