Genesis 38:1-26

Loving Divine Family,

We enter your sacred prayer space with filth in our gene pockets. We recognize that we do not come from perfect families. Our ancestors fell into sin and dragged us with them. Yet, you love us and call us your children. You have not cast us out in spite of ourselves. Cleanse us with your Holy Spirit, that we may be truly clean.

Praise to you, our Loving God. We are precious to you. Thank you for protecting the vulnerable, like women and children. Thank you for protecting the boundary lines for the widows. We sometimes forget who we are, your plans and promises for us. Thank you for sending people into our lives to remind us who we are. Thank you for protecting our seeds. Thank you; nothing can keep us separate from your love and your promises.

I feel you cleansing me today, O Yahweh, and thank you for…

Your hands are gentle upon us as you remove old and new dirt from our bodies, minds, and souls. We feel Life-giving Spirit’s breath drying and nurturing us like a summer breeze on our skin. Your forgiveness is perfect and complete in us. All praise to you!

With joy we praise you!

Amen!

Cherie and Donovan Mutschler
