Eleventh Week of Ordinary Time, Tuesday, August 15, 2023
Loving Divine Family,
We are threatened and battered on all sides. The wicked of this world challenge us. You have created sacred spaces for us. You lead us out of our human conditions and place us in pleasant places. You stay with us and protect us from harm.
Merciful God, you hear the cry of your creation, and you answer the cry for salvation and protection. Thank you for your warning and guiding us in different ways until we hear and obey you. Thank you for being in the midst, the mess, and the mix of our lives. Thank you for hearing our prayers, remembering us, and answering our prayers.
I follow you to calm, sacred spaces today, Loving LORD, and thank you for…
You have called us out of our conditions. You redeemed us; you removed us from certain destruction. Instead, you placed us on high mountains to once again look upon the vast landscape you promised to us. We see the desolation of those who have chosen to not follow your guidance, but we also see your blessings stretching beyond the horizons. Your love is amazing!
With joy we praise you!
Cherie and Donovan Mutschler
