Galatians 4:21-5:1

Loving Divine Family,

We enter your sacred prayer space to once again receive your wise guidance. We live in a world divided by politics, race, culture, and creed. We wish to escape from the division and to find unity. You draw near and reveal to us your true, inclusive nature. Your covenant and promises are for all creation, for all time. You remind us that Christ died for the freedom of all, not the freedom of some.

Faithful God, thank you for keeping your promises. You promised Abraham and Sarah that Sarah would be the mother of the nations, and kings would come from her. Thank you for your son, Jesus Christ, Emmanuel (God With Us), who has set us free. Thank you for the loving invitation not to be burdened by the yoke of slavery, but to live a life of grace. 

I hear your invitation to be free today, O LORD, and thank you for…

If you have given us freedom, then we are free indeed. Even more, you give freedom to all creation completely! Beyond political, ethnic, religious, or other divisions, your grace covers us all! We journey on your Holy Way, this Ancient Path, seeking equality and understanding, and greeting each other in a good way.

With joy we praise you!

Amen!

Cherie and Donovan Mutschler
