Opening Prayer

You love our interactive dependence on You, Life-giving God! As Abraham boldly bargained with You, teach us to interact with You with bold confidence and childlike expectations. We are grateful that Your soft heart is responsive to our pleas and faith. You are not some distant, hard-hearted, unchanging force. You are a Parent who loves us. Like our parents, You sacrifice so much to give us the best and create fullness. Teach us to treat each other the way You treat us. Give us the listening heart of a parent, so that we listen and respond to each other the way You listen and respond to us. Give us the daily bread of prayerful interaction with You.
