Luke 1:46b-55

Loving Divine Family,

Our souls glorify you; our spirits rejoice in you! You have not forgotten us in our times of need; you are our storehouse in times of plenty. We have cried to you in our barrenness; you have counted our tears and responded to the cries of our hearts. We fall at your feet in your sacred prayer space. All praise and thanksgiving to you, LORD, for you have been our guide on your Ancient Path.

From generation to generation, you have performed mighty deeds. Thank you for keeping your promises and remembering to be merciful. We join in the song of Mary, the mother of Jesus, to glorify you, and rejoice in your goodness. You are mindful of us and love us. 

I see your Holy Mountain in the distance today, O LORD, and thank you for…

We join with Mary and Elizabeth, Ruth and Naomi, and all the women through the generations who have been faithful to you and your call. They are our Water Carriers who birth your new way for their communities. We praise you for the Water Carriers in our community who hold fast to your call, bringing peace, love, joy, and hope into our midst.

With joy we praise you!

Amen!

Cherie and Donovan Mutschler
