Lord Jesus, we desire to honor you by placing our faith in you. Forgive us by being stubborn and easily offended by you. Would you soften our hearts to receive your presence. Just as the men of Nineveh repented at the preaching of Jonah, may we repent as you share your words with us. All authority in heaven and on the earth is yours, and you have been commissioned by the Father to proclaim the Kingdom of Heaven, as the Beloved Son. May you come to heal the sick, raise the dead, cure those with leprosy, and cast out demons. As freely as we have received from you, may we also give to others. Amen.
