2 Kings 5:1-14

Loving Divine Family,

We come to you with ailments. We need your healing. You invite us into your sacred prayer space; through the wisdom and compassion of others in our community, you invite us. But sometimes, the healing we receive is not what we were expecting or hoping for. 

Jehovah-Rapha (God who Heals), thank you for hearing our cry for healing. You, Loving God, are present and patient, even when we argue with you about how we are healed and cared for. Humble our hearts, so we will hear instead of commanding you.

I am guided by your wisdom and compassion today, O Yahweh, and thank you for…

Even when our life requires change, even when your guidance takes us through a time of pain and suffering, we trust in your love and mercy. Your ways are perfect, O LORD, and we journey towards wellness and your Holy Mountain with the support of your community of Elders, guides and Knowledge-keepers.

With joy, we praise you!


Cherie and Donovan Mutschler
