Isaiah 49:1-7

Loving Divine Family,

We enter your sacred prayer space, aware of your voice and commission. Too many times we try to hide from you. But where can we go to flee from your presence? You call to us in your thunderous whisper; your voice echoes in the wilderness. All creation hears and obeys your voice, from the coastlands to the mountains. Nations fall to their knees at the sound of your voice; mountains move, and the earth trembles. You call us to return and fulfil the dream you spoke into us long ago.

Faithful, Holy God, praise to you; your ways are not our ways. We work towards our visions and goals, doing it our own way. We use up our own strength, have nothing to show for it, and our labour is in vain. But you, O LORD, are our strength and our reward is in you. Your plans and visions for us are larger than we can imagine. In you, we can be a light to the world.

I fall to my knees at the sound of your voice today, O Yahweh, and thank you for…

Shine your light upon the landscape of our lives again, Mighty Yahweh, and reveal your direction in our lives, so, through us, your hope will spread throughout creation. Place us, once again, upon your Ancient Path. Guide us in your will, so we will greet each other in a good way.

With joy we praise you!

Amen!

Cherie and Donovan Mutschler
