Romans 8:14-17

Loving Divine Family,

We enter your sacred prayer space orphaned by the world around us. This mortal life–human condition and circumstances–have betrayed us. We grow old, and suffer from physical and mental illness, war, famine, joblessness, and lack of purpose. But you, LORD, draw near to us. In a moment, you remove our mortal rags and dress us in your eternal, royal robe. You reveal your purpose and dreams for us. You reveal our status as your children and co-heirs with Christ to your Heavenly Kingdom.

Thank you Life Giving Spirit for your calm, gentle presence that reassures us that we are God’s beloved children. We are quiet to the distractions and focus on you and your wisdom. May we bring God glory and honour.

I feel your royal robe around me today, O LORD, and thank you for…

Your robe clothes our nakedness and restores us. We find rest in your presence. Your robe is your grace and peace. Your robe is all we need. You receive us as we are. We shall journey together in a good way as your beloved children, and enter your eternal courts with songs of praise and singing. We will forever be in your presence, in the presence of your throne of grace.

With joy we praise you!


Cherie and Donovan Mutschler
