Opening Prayer

Jesus, you are older than Melchizedek, yet younger than my present breath. You are king of justice and king of peace. You are priest forever because You have irrevocably connected us with God. You use Your power to heal all that is shriveled in us, especially our petty minds which would shrink Your ability to act. Expand the horizons of our narrow-mindedness. Bring us to full stature and wholeness as God’s sons and daughters. Lengthen our reach and always inspire us to choose life.
