Amos 7:1-6

Loving Divine Family,

We enter your sacred prayer space seeking your compassion. We see and feel life’s hardships. We mistake our hardships as harsh correction from you. We see how others are struggling and fear they will not survive. We experience the same fears about ourselves. You reveal that you never withhold the full measure of your love and compassion from anyone. You celebrate our desire for others to feel your mercy and healing.

LORD, often we turn from you and follow other gods and idols. We do what we think is best for ourselves, which leads us far away from you and who you made us to be, and also destroys your creation. You long for relationship with us. You wait for us to call out to you. Thank you, LORD, for softening your heart and for blessing us with your love, grace, and mercy.

I celebrate your love, grace, and mercy in my life today, Loving Yahweh, and thank you for…

“Salvation to you, O God, who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb! Blessing and glory and wisdom and thanks and honour and power and strength be to our God forever and ever!” (NIV, Revelation 7:10, 12)

With joy, we praise you!

Amen!

Cherie and Donovan Mutschler
