Fourth Sunday after Pentecost, July 3, 2022
Loving Divine Family,
We gather at your Beautiful Gate rejoicing in your blessings. You created us to be in relationship with you and in community with each other. You have given us all we need, including the space to gather together, be nourished by you, and be encouraged by Life-giving Spirit in our midst. We bring our prayers to you; lifting our voices, we bring prayers of thanksgiving and all our griefs and sorrows.
Praise to you, El Shaddai (God Almighty, Breasted One), for the joy of the Lord is our strength. We are full of contentment like a baby snuggled up to their mother’s breast, nursing with milk running down the baby’s cheeks. Thank you for the peace and contentment you give us. We rejoice in you; our hearts are full of joy.
I lift my prayers to you today, Loving Yahweh, and thank you for…
Gather us in, and make us whole. Gather us from all directions and give us your new homestead with new celebrations and blessings. Meet us in our celebrations and sorrows, and nourish us for all time.
With joy we praise you!
Cherie and Donovan Mutschler
