Matthew 17:1-9 read by Mark Beingessner

Matthew 17:1-9

Loving Divine Family,

We enter your sacred prayer space to hear your instructions. You have said we are to listen to Jesus. We often try to listen to your guidance, but may get focused on responding with our own biases and ideas. We jump ahead to action based upon what we think we already know. But you call us to listen so we can have new understanding. Your first desire is a relationship with us.

Thank you, Loving Divine Family, for expressing your love for us. Thank you for your gentle guidance that leads us to relationship with you and to living out who you created us to be. Your love covers us like a warm blanket.

I feel you covering me today, O LORD, and thank you for…

You lift us up from the limits of our own understanding. Your new way teaches us patience and courage. We will not be afraid as we journey on this Ancient Path with you. This journey and all we encounter are common experiences with which we will dialogue and encourage each other.

With joy we praise you!


Cherie and Donovan Mutschler
