Isaiah 35:1-10

Loving Divine Family,

We enter your sacred prayer space, seeking your Holy Way. You meet us here and welcome us in. You tell us of your Holy Mountain, the place where we will gather as your righteous people. You draw back the blinds and show us the land filled with joy. Streams flow in the dessert; songs burst forth from all creation. You invite us to participate in your mystery; we see your light shining on your Holy Way.

We hear the message to be strong and to not be afraid, because you are with us, saving us. With joyful hearts we sing: “Therefore the redeemed of the Lord shall return, and come with singing unto Zion; and everlasting joy shall be upon their head. They shall obtain gladness and joy; and sorrow and mourning shall flee away (“Therefore the Redeemed of the Lord Shall Return,” Ruth Lake).

I sing with joy for your goodness today, Loving Creator, and thank you for…

You have redeemed us to yourself, O Creator, and placed us on your Holy Way, the good path that leads to your Holy Mountain. We sing praises as we journey. Your joy is everlasting! 

With joy we praise you!

Amen!

Cherie and Donovan Mutschler
