Opening Prayer

Jesus, Your blood is life! No veil separates us! You have bathed us in God’s life and implanted us in the sanctuary of God’s heart. Refine us not to spill other blood to please You. Teach us to trust in the absolute power of Your sacrifice, which transforms and uplifts the human experience. You have made us holy. Your family was concerned about You, Jesus, because Your message was so challenging and people were consuming You. InSpirit us to have the same concern for Your brothers and sisters who are consumed and challenged. Please take charge of us, life-giving Jesus, as we serve Your family in the tabernacle of our life experience.
