Opening Prayer

Faithful God of our ancestors, You continue to walk with us as You walked with them. Their faith is my hope. With gratitude, I want to offer You the best of what You have given me. Like Jesus, I wrestle with the voices of power, privilege, and prestige screaming within. InSpirit my faith to calm the cacophony of sounds echoing inside me, that I might hear Your ancient, youthful Voice speaking today in my heart. Throughout this Lenten desert journey, refine the music which orchestrates my energy. Justify and purify my heart that I might give myself to You and Your reign with integrity, humility, sincerity, and wholeheartedness.
