Twentieth Week of Ordinary Time, Friday, October 20, 2023
Loving Divine Family,
We enter your sacred prayer space as open books before you. You already know what is in our hearts even before we are aware. Your teachings are our wisdom. Your word fertilises the good seeds you have planted within us. You are preparing us for what is to come–you are nourishing and nurturing us.
Loving Yahweh, thank you for our homes and for your provision. May we learn to cherish and honour you and follow your instructions and wisdom. May we live lives of humility that bring you glory and honour.
I receive your word and wisdom today, Loving God, and thank you for…
We choose you above all others to be our God. With you as the author and foundation of our lives, we will love you, and encourage others to also grow in their love for you. Sustain us on your Ancient Path. Grant us your grace and faith to step boldly into thresholds that take us to your glory. When fear grips us, empty us of our fears and pull us forward, so we will step into your light and everlasting life.
With joy we praise you!
Cherie and Donovan Mutschler
