Matthew 4:12-23

Loving Divine Family,

We enter your sacred prayer space with resolve. We resolve to be in this time of prayer with you. There are so many distractions in our day: the phone rings, we get emails and texts, and our circumstances demand our attention. But you call us out of our jobs and responsibilities to a new vocation. You call us to your purpose once again.

Loving God, thank you for the invitation to follow you. Thank you, Jesus, for proclaiming the good news of hope. Thank you, Divine Family, for healing every disease and sickness.

I remain with you in all I do today, O LORD, and thank you for…

Meet us in our circumstances, and breathe your new life into us. Create the space for us to follow you from where we are to where you need us to be. Open our hearts, so we will respond and follow you.

With joy we praise you!

Amen!

Cherie and Donovan Mutschler
