Isaiah 11:1-10

Loving Divine Family,

We enter your sacred prayer space, drawn by your mystery. We look to you for comfort. Nations are at war; we remain at the mercy of viruses and pandemics that threaten our existence. You wrap us in your mighty arms and press your lips to our ears. We feel your breath on our necks and hear your gentle voice: “Receive my grace. My mercy covers all creation, and it covers you. You are at no other mercy but mine.” 

Spirit of Wisdom and Understanding, we come to you to listen, to receive your peace. Thank you, Jesus is our banner of love. Thank you, Spirit of the LORD, for resting on Jesus and now resting on us.

I receive your grace today, Merciful Yahweh, and thank you for…

Such mystery surrounds you and your ways. You create the path to peace. All who are foes and at odds with each other will find peace in your care. Your Holy Mountain knows no limit. Your mercy stretches beyond every horizon. We look to you for perfect peace, trusting in your promises.

With joy we praise you!

Amen!

Cherie and Donovan Mutschler
