Isaiah 56:1, 6-8

Loving Divine Family,

We gather at your Beautiful Gate, a faith-marker, to remember your merciful ways throughout the generations. We enter your sacred prayer space to seek your guidance. We long to be among your chosen people, those you have gathered and will continue to gather to your Holy Mountain.

Thank you, Loving Yahweh, for your steadfast love and blessings are for all of creation, not for a select few. Thank you for your mercy and righteousness. Thank you for your house of prayer for all people.

I seek your wisdom and guidance today, O Yahweh, and thank you for…

You reveal your wisdom and guidance to us–to do justly to others and do what is right, in accordance with your ways. We will follow your guidance in all we do today, and we will journey in a good way towards your Holy Mountain.

With joy we praise you!


Cherie and Donovan Mutschler
