Opening Prayer

My Champion! I want to revel in You and rely on You! Sometimes I get paranoid and scared because I measure You against human beings. Continue to be my eternal strength and championing hope. Help me not to fear. Empower me to believe that Jesus more than made up for Adam’s sin and that Your grace is so available, present and powerful! Help me not to live or be encaved in darkness. InSpirit me to believe, acknowledge and proclaim that You are the God of every breath, thought, and movement this day. Champion my darkness. Make the dawn of Your love and presence rise amidst the blinding nightimes of my fears.
