First Week After Epiphany, Thursday, January 13, 2022
LORD, your love reaches to the heavens,
your loyalty to the skies.
Your goodness is as high as the mountains.
Your justice is as deep as the great ocean.
LORD, you protect both people and animals.
God, your love is so precious!
You protect people in the shadow of your wings.
They eat the rich food in your house,
and you let them drink from your river of pleasure.
You are the giver of life.
Your light lets us enjoy life.
Continue to love those who know you
and to do good to those who are good.
(New Century Version (NCV))
Loving Divine Family,
We enter your holy prayer space feeling your safe and loving embrace. We hear your heartbeat, a lullaby familiar to us since you first embraced us in the womb. We do not say a word but focus on our breath as it dances with yours. Your love is all we need.
O Yahweh, the vastness of your love for us is beyond our comprehension. You protect us and the rest of creation. Your banquet of love is a beautiful feast full of abundance. Thank you for the gifts of life and breath. Thank you that you take delight in our enjoyment.
I join in your loving breath-dance today, O Yahweh, and thank you for…
We long to remain with you in this space, O LORD. Your love is so perfect to us. Remain with us always, we pray, so we may celebrate your never-ending love for us wherever we go.
With joy we praise you!
Cherie and Donovan Mutschler
