Jonah 3:1-10

Loving Divine Family,

We enter your sacred prayer space, and hear you calling to us in our hearts and through your prophets. We hear your warnings to turn from our journeys, the paths we walk that have led us in darkness and far from you. You hear our cries for help and draw near to us. Rescue us from ourselves, we cry.

We call out to you, our God; we confess we have not followed you nor obeyed you. We have gone our own way. Thank you for your Messengers of Love who call us back to you. Thank you for your compassion and mercy.

I hear your call to join you on a new path today, O Yahweh, and thank you for…

Have compassion on us, O Yahweh. Give us new life, a new path that is illuminated by you. We will heed your Word and warnings, and follow your wisdom. We journey with you in celebration.

With joy we praise you!


Cherie and Donovan Mutschler
