Opening Prayer

Sovereign Lord, re-extend Your outstretched arm again to save us from ourselves! We destroyed Your holy Servant Jesus. We are destroying Him again today! You stretched out Your arm and raised Him up. We need to be saved from ourselves and the way we continue to destroy Your Christ living around our world today. Uplift us by the mighty arms of Jesus. We need to be reborn again by the power, energy, and fire of Your Spirit. Let Your Divine Wind blow through the hollows of our hearts. Let Your Holy Breath fill the depths of our destructive darkness and re-ignite the fire of faith! Claim Your sovereignty in every part of our existence and experience.
