1 John 4:1-6

Loving Divine Family,

We enter your sacred prayer space seeking you. The Deceiver is hard at work to pull us away from you. We are thrown many false ideas like you are not our Creator, and Jesus is not our Saviour. But all these claims come from those who are in league with the Deceiver. They are all liars. Draw near to us so we may once again hear stories of truth from you.

Thank you, Loving Yahweh, for the instructions to test the spirits to make sure they are from you, and to be aware of who we are listening to. Thank you we are your dear children, who you love, and that we come from you. Thank you, you are with us and never abandon us. Thank you that you are greater than the Father of Lies. We receive your truth that we are loved.

I feel you close and hear your stories of truth today, Loving Yahweh, and thank you for…

You tell us your stories and we believe you. Your stories do not have the urgency and stench of deception that come from lies. Your stories are of love and gentleness, like the warm embrace from a loving caregiver, like sunshine on a summer day. We feel your love and know that you are truth.

With joy, we praise you!

Amen!

Cherie and Donovan Mutschler
