Opening Prayer

Jesus, were you surprised when Peter’s mother-in-law was cured? Were you tired and weary when everyone came to You for healing? How did you get away for time of quiet and reflection? For communion with God working in and through You? You must have been humbled by God’s power working so powerfully through You! Do we frustrate and weary You today with the ways we divide Your Body and judge other parts? Teach us this day to be Your co-workers, not Your competitors. Help us to work in the power of Your Spirit to cultivate the garden, and build the temple of Your reign. Use Your healing power, Lord Jesus, to make us whole and living signs of Your good news!
