Opening Prayer
  God of grace and powerful weakness, at times your prophets were ignored, rejected, belittled, and unwelcome.
Trusting that we, too, are called to be prophets, fill us with your Spirit, and support us by your gentle hands, that we may persevere in speaking your word and living our faith. Amen.

The Lord’s Prayer    
    Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come,
