Daniel 3:1-18

Loving Divine Family,

We enter your sacred prayer space, greeted with the sound of trumpets as you call your community together. Songs of praise and worship rise from believers from the four directions. All manner of creature and creation respond to you in ceremony. Their prayers rise like sacred pipe smoke, like the smoke of incense, to your holy throne. We bow before you as you invite us to join your mystery. 

You call us by the name you gave us. We are your Beloved, you are with us. You fill us with grace and mercy, may we never forget we are a gift of you. There is no god or person like you, loving God. We take our eyes off our circumstances, we worship you and praise you because you help us.

I bow before you today, Mighty God, and thank you for…

Nations are at war. People scatter and flee for their lives. Let your trumpets sound among the nations. Let the word go forth again that you are Jehovah Shalom – God of Peace. You are the God of all creation. We will worship you alone and imitate your mercy, love, and kindness in a broken world.

With joy, we praise you!


Cherie and Donovan Mutschler
