Jeremiah 23:1-6

Loving Divine Family,

We enter your sacred prayer space as sheep of your flock who are coming home. We were once scattered throughout the lands, but you called us to return to you. Our ancestors were driven from their comfort and depended on you in foreign lands. We learned from them how to trust in you. Now, in your perfect timing, you have returned us to you, as an answer to their prayers and your promise.  

Thank you, Loving Shepherd, for bringing us to luscious pastures where we can spend time with you and each other. Thank you for kind, gentle leaders who care for us and help us be who you created us to be. Thank you, Jesus, for your gentle reign.

I hear you calling me home today, Loving Shepherd, and thank you for…

You, LORD, are our righteousness. In you, we find our refuge and safety. Even when they left their homes and journeyed as refugees, our ancestors looked to you for comfort. Now, LORD, we receive the full measure of your promises. We are home with you! Thanks be to God!

With joy we praise you!

Amen!

Cherie and Donovan Mutschler
