Matthew 14:13-21

Loving Divine Family,

Hallelujah, LORD, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life. We gather on the shore, in parks and places of worship, and at city halls; we all seek your healing, hope, and compassion. We find you here, in these sacred spaces. We receive food, shelter, and peace. But we also find scorn and judgement from those who think we should just get better and rise above our conditions.

Compassionate One, thank you for always having time for us, even when we do not realize you are waiting for us. Thank you for your healing touch that brings life, nourishment, and renewal. We look to you, Divine, for all we need.

I look to you for compassion in my human condition today, O LORD, and thank you for…

We will look upon each other with the same compassion as you have shown to us. Give us your wisdom, LORD, that we will commit to remaining with others in need. Give us discernment to hear your voice and follow your teachings, so we will greet each other in a good way.

With joy we praise you!


Cherie and Donovan Mutschler
