Acts 10:34-43 read by Mark Beingessner

Acts 10:34-43

Loving Divine Family,

We enter your sacred prayer space filled with hope for the coming days. Our ancestors worshipped you at altars they built in holy places. They celebrated in the cold days of the changing seasons, just as we do now. We gather to hear words of encouragement for our coming journey. We open ourselves to your teachings. 

All-loving God, we, your Beloved, are grateful that you love us intimately and long to be in relationship with us. You have created each of us in love and do not show favouritism to anyone. Thank you, Abba Father, for anointing Jesus, our Saviour, with the Holy Spirit and power at Jesus’ baptism. We hear the call to be in unison with you, Divine Family, and with each other. Thank you for blessing us with loving relationships. 

I open myself to your encouragement today, O LORD, and thank you for…

We hear the words of prophets of old, and we are amazed. We believe because we have seen your miracles with our own eyes. We will tell of your glory and majesty as we journey together on your Ancient Path. 

With joy we praise you! 

Amen!

Cherie and Donovan Mutschler
