Philippians 3:4b-14

Loving Divine Family,

We enter your sacred prayer space as your children– chosen and called by name, we come to you. We are hard-pressed on all sides; yet, here we are. We have persevered. We count our successes like diamonds in our hands. You gather us in, revealing to us that it is only by your grace that we are still standing.

Loving Yahweh, we long for you and for our ongoing life in Christ. Thank you for encouraging and strengthening us with your loving presence. We abandon our past and look to you for our identity and for direction.

I let go of my past today, Loving LORD, and thank you for…

In you alone, do we place our trust. We find our glory in the power of your cross. In every victory, let it be said of us that our source of strength and hope is you alone.

With joy we praise you!


Cherie and Donovan Mutschler
