1 Thessalonians 5:1-11

Loving Divine Family,

We enter your sacred prayer space with praise and thanksgiving. You welcome us with your loving embrace. You assure us that you have reserved space for us in your kingdom. You give us all your wisdom to live lives as your beloved sheep.

God of Comfort and Peace, thank you for your encouragement that you are with us, your children of light. You did not appoint us to suffer wrath, but to receive your salvation through Jesus Christ, our LORD. We take great pleasure serving you, Yahweh. You invite us to put on faith and love, which protects our emotions, so we are emotionally healthy. You invite us to put on hope of salvation, so our thoughts are shielded from the evil one.

I seek to live according to your wisdom today, O LORD, and thank you for…

We will live with the promise that we have eternity in your meadows. We will lift up those in our community and conduct ourselves with integrity. Give us your wisdom for right living.

With joy we praise you!


Cherie and Donovan Mutschler
