Twentieth Week of Ordinary Time, Monday, October 16, 2023
Loving Divine Family,
We enter your sacred prayer space, longing to be in your presence. We are weary from journeying on our own, trying to succeed outside of your presence and community. We try desperately to resist the Intruder’s temptation to stray from you. Stay near to us–keep peace within; keep evil out. Call us home in your divine timing.
Thank you, Holy Spirit, for helping us to pray. We hear the invitation to grow by living lives of faith and intentionally loving you. We are blessed by your mercy and love. Thank you for giving us joy.
I long for your perfect peace today, Loving LORD, and thank you for…
You are on your throne, clothed in glory. Praise to you, LORD, for you have prepared a place for us in your heavenly mansion, on your Holy Mountain. We place our trust in you. Prepare us to answer your invitation when you call us home. Carry us on the wings of Life-giving Spirit to journey with you.
With joy, we praise you!
Cherie and Donovan Mutschler
