John 17:20-26

Loving Divine Family,

We enter your sacred prayer space following Jesus’ example of how to pray. We call out to you and share our desires like John wrote about Jesus. You meet us here and draw near to us. You reveal that there were many more times when Jesus went off on his own to pray. These are the deeper, undocumented times of prayer. You tell us that in this space you desire to fill us with your wisdom and reassurance. We find comfort. We silence ourselves so you can fill us with your wisdom.

Thank you, Jesus, for showing us how to have a relationship with God; how to have a two-way dialogue with God. We hear the invitation to be still and consciously breathe in Life-giving Spirit’s presence. Thank you, Jesus, for thinking of us the night before your crucifixion but also praying for us. Thank you for community, deep oneness with God and with each other. Though we are many, we are one.

I listen to your wisdom today, Loving LORD, and thank you for…

You have taught us to pray through examples from Jesus and Prayer Warriors within our community. Continue to draw near to us; encourage us to pray with our hearts, not just with our heads. Draw us beyond human logic and understanding into the depths of your great mystery, so we may sojourn together in a good way.

With joy we praise you!

Amen!

Cherie and Donovan Mutschler
