Romans 7:14-25

Loving Divine Family,

We enter your sacred prayer space seeking healing. We are a battleground of good and evil living within us. The Intruder has deceived us along our path as we have been seeking you. The Intruder has given us false truths that have led to unwise habits and beliefs. But you, LORD, are peace and truth, health and wisdom. Here in this place, you strip away the Intruder’s filth and dress our wounds with your royal robe.

Thank you, Loving Yahweh, for loving us just as we are, even when we sin. We know what is right and want to do as you want for us, but we do it on our own. It is a battle of the will. We fail when we do it on our own. The more we try to do it on our own, the worse it gets. Thank you, God, that we are delivered through Jesus Christ, our LORD and that the Holy Spirit speaks to us.

I receive your holy healing today, Loving LORD, and thank you for…

Anyone who feels that they’re unworthy
            Anyone who’s just afraid
Come sinner, come and receive [God’s] mercy
            Come as you are.

For the robe is of God
            That will clothe your nakedness
And the robe is [God’s] grace
            It’s all you need, come as you are. (Wes King, “The Robe”)

With joy we praise you!

Amen!

Cherie and Donovan Mutschler
