1 Kings 1:28-37

Loving Divine Family,

We enter your sacred prayer space, aware of our mortal flesh and limited time in this earthly life. But you, Almighty Three-in-one, are immortal and have made us co-heirs of your kingdom with Christ. You have promised us immortality beyond this life we know. You gave us your image, and you have placed your mark upon us so all will see and know you are our God.

Thank you, Loving Yahweh, for keeping your oaths. Thank you for answering our prayers. Thank you for bringing your community together to work to bring about your will, peace, justice, righteousness, and to build up your people. We do not need to force what has been promised, but rather work with you to bring about the blessings.

I receive your blessings today, Loving Creator, and thank you for…

We receive what you have passed to us. Likewise, we look to the next generations to pass along all you have graciously given to us. We will deal as generously with our next generations as you have with us.

With joy we praise you!


Cherie and Donovan Mutschler
