Opening Prayer

The intimacy of Your presence is awesome, God of love. Thank You for creating us in Your image and intensifying Your intimacy in Christ. We hear Your ancient echoes and lofty expectations in our hearts. You are in the fiber of our souls. In being true to ourselves, we are faithful to You. Help us to image You in our wholeheartedness to You and each other. Cure the half-heartedness and hard-heartedness which allows us to ignore brothers and sisters in the ditches on the pathways of our lives. Recreate us in Your image and infuse us again with the Spirit of Jesus, that we may live in the freedom and power of Your generous heart. Be moved with compassion for us today, that we not be strangers from our own hearts.
