We enter your sacred prayer space as equals with each other. We are just people, but you, Loving Creator, have called us to join in community to support and encourage each other. Your word speaks through those in our community who are obedient to your voice. Open our ears so we may hear your call for us today.

All praise and glory to you, LORD! You have taught us how to seek solitude to pray with you! In your sacred prayer space, you show us your new ways and encourage us to step out of the chains of old ways that serve only to bind us. Though we resist you, your love and patience surround us so we may listen and understand, so we may be prepared for what you are calling us to.

Loving Divine Family,

We enter your sacred prayer space feeling quanked (overpowered by fatigue) from the busy-ness of our schedules and from pouring into others out of a sense of duty. We seek rest and energy, and protection from the demands of others. In your wise compassion, Life-giving Spirit speaks to us, bringing nourishment and reassurance. You remind us of your messages through wise Elders you have placed in our lives, and we feel peace and energy return to us.

Thank you, Life-giving Spirit, for gently speaking to us and nudging us to let go of doing things our own way. Thank you for reminding us we are your beloved children. We stay close to you, so when we start to do things our own way, we hear your loving voice reminding us to walk in peace, patience, and love instead of vengeance and violence. We remember that you are the shepherd and you remain close to us, your sheep.

Yahweh, we confess we want to hoard, to get revenge, to judge, and to retaliate against those who hurt us or who are different from us. In the quiet stillness of this space, we hear you call us your Beloved. Thank you for showing kindness and mercy to us and your creation. Thank you for gently reminding us to use our words and actions to bless and not to curse others.
