1 Peter 1:3-9

Loving Divine Family,

We enter your sacred prayer space, rejoicing in spite of present trials. You have looked upon us with favour, and even now, you do not hide your face from us. Although we suffer hardships each day, you lift us up so we will not perish. We stay with you by faith, believing you will never leave or forsake us.

Divine Family, you are mysterious, wonderful, and your love is beyond measure. Thank you for new birth and a living hope that protects us from our past. Thank you for the inheritance, and that you are protecting us with your glorious power. Thank you for protecting our future. You are with us in our present time; you are with us in our trials and suffering, in our midst, and in our mess. Thank you, Jesus’ resurrection gives us hope; our lives are refined and produce joy.

I come to you in faith today, Sovereign LORD, and thank you for…

We have seen your glory in our lives, LORD. You have shown us your face and continue to refine us through our trials. You have not let us perish. We shout for joy and sing praises to you as we journey together on this earth. We know that this present joy will remain and be multiplied when our earthly lives are stripped away. Salvation is yours, Sovereign LORD.

With joy we praise you!

Amen!

Cherie and Donovan Mutschler
