Genesis 15:1-6

Loving Divine Family,

We enter your sacred prayer space, seeking your affirmation. You welcome us and invite us to listen to your amazing plans for us. We cannot fathom what we hear. Your goals for us seem so grand and far-reaching. How can we ever attain your goals? We feel so ill-equipped. But you remind us of your blessings to Abraham and Sarah; how, in your time, you provided everything they needed to fulfil your promises, and their part was to follow your guidance with faith and obedience.

Loving Yahweh, thank you for this time with you. We long to hear you. We turn our eyes and ears to hear you say “do not be afraid.” Your loving presence reassures us and strengthens our faith.

I hear your amazing plans for me today, Loving Yahweh, and thank you for…

Walk with us through our doubts so we can believe your plans. Remove our fears, which can cripple us, so we can move forward and dance with Life-giving Spirit. Grant us the faith to understand without seeing. Give us enough light for the steps we need to take this day on your ancient path.

With joy we praise you!

Amen!

Cherie and Donovan Mutschler
