Opening Prayer

Jesus, expel the demons that possess and disturb us. We foam with anger and grind our teeth in frustration over things we cannot control. Give us the wisdom to trust You — the faith that calms and frees our spirit. Renew our life from the demonic prison of fear, frustration, violence and trying to do it all ourselves. You are the Messiah, not me! Not us! You are the God of Wisdom who gently creates, enlivens and enjoys us. Touch us today with Your Healing Gladness and warm our hearts. Soothe our spirits. Be the Wisdom who enlightens and gentles us in Your Powerful Embrace and Healing Touch.
