Twenty-fourth Week of Ordinary Time, Monday, November 13, 2023
Loving Divine Family,
As we journey on your Ancient Path, we seek you at every turn and junction. We see you set the table before us, and clear the traps set by our enemies. You invite us to dine and spend time with you. We enter your sacred prayer space–this tent of meeting that you bring with us on our journey. We marvel at how you love to spend time with us, although we are filthy from our travels.
Loving Yahweh, you are our God. In the wilderness, we are thirsty and are earnestly seeking you. We are thirsty because we have displaced what we truly need with things that falsely claim to meet our needs. Our addictions draw us away from you and divert our energy to destruction. We pray to you, remembering your power, strength, and might. We are reminded that you love us with unmerited generosity.
I seek you on my journey today, O LORD, and thank you for…
We glorify your name, O LORD. Your praises are on our lips when we lie down to sleep and when we wake. Surely you are also with us in the darkness, when we are sleeping. Guide our hearts, and remain with us as we enter our days and nights and travel faithfully in your care.
With joy, we praise you!
Cherie and Donovan Mutschler
