Genesis 27:30-38

Loving Divine Family,

We enter your sacred prayer space, seeking your blessings. We want to receive all we have coming to us, measured according to our own will and what we think we deserve. We even ask your blessing upon our own self-seeking ventures, although we know these ventures will take us down dark paths and away from you. But you quiet us and remind us that your blessings are continuous and unconditional. You encourage us to keep your decrees, not as a condition to receiving your blessings, but so we will not lose sight of you.

Loving Yahweh, thank you, we are loved by you, and you do not show favouritism. You have enough blessings and love for everyone. We place our trust and love in you. Thank you for your mercies. Thank you for your love and faithfulness, which protect us. May we be a blessing to you and to others.  

I see your blessings in my life today, O Yahweh, and thank you for…

Fill us with joy and contentment that can only come from living under your grace and mercy. Give us all we need for each day, so we will want for nothing and stay close to you. Let your blessings fall like gentle rain upon your creation and make us glad.

With joy we praise you!

Amen!

Cherie and Donovan Mutschler
