Eighteenth Week of Ordinary Time, Friday, October 6, 2023
Loving Divine Family,
We enter your sacred prayer space with grateful hearts. You blessed the generations before us by fulfilling your promises. We remember them when we look to the sky. When we gaze at night, they are as numerous as the stars that shine on us. In the day, they are as plentiful as the clouds that shade us. All of this is only by your divine love for us.
Praise to you, Yahweh. You love and care for us. You speak kindness to us. Thank you for the reminder to live lives of gratitude, instead of complaining and arguing with each other. May our lives of faith be a pleasing aroma to you. May your joy be complete in us.
I celebrate your love for me today, O LORD, and thank you for…
We place our trust in you. Hear our prayers, and use them as blessings for others. When you release us from our earthly vessels, carry us to the resting place of our ancestors, so we will be remembered as the stars and clouds. When others look up, let them remember your goodness and know that you are our God.
With joy we praise you!
Cherie and Donovan Mutschler
