Opening Prayer

Life-giving God, You save us from ourselves. You rescued us from sin and have made us holy. You fill us with Your Spirit and make us precious in Your eyes. You call us to be life-giving because You have justified us. Help us to burn with justice for others, even when it disturbs our comfortable world, and our family and friends. May Your life-giving Spirit burn within us and make us instruments of transformation, unveiling and freeing the justice You have already won for us in Jesus. Inflame us with passion for You and others. Refine and burn away all that holds us back from being life-giving and challenging. Rekindle our hearts, God of life, Eternal Fire!
