James 2:1-7

Loving Divine Family,

We gather at your Beautiful Gate from all directions to worship you as one community. We are your Royal Priesthood, Elders, Knowledge Keepers, and Water Carriers. We are your Teachers, Warriors, and Peace Makers. We are your Healers and Mentors. We come together from the heavenly realm from ancient days and from this present age. We come as equals; there is no favouritism in your courts. You welcome us all as your equally-and perfectly-loved children.

We, your people, come to be in this moment with you. Thank you for bringing to our attention that we show favouritism either intentionally or unintentionally. We admit to you that by judging we are following wrong motives. Thank you for the red flags, so we can return to you. Thank you for the gift of you and your instructions that lead to a healthy mind and body.

I join your community as an equal in your courts today, Loving LORD, and thank you for…

Give us your wisdom so we may know your thoughts. Give us your eyes so we may see each other as you see us. Give us your heart so we may love each other as you love us and greet each other in a good way.

With joy, we praise you!

Amen!

Cherie and Donovan Mutschler
