Isaiah 53:1-12

Loving Divine Family,

We enter your sacred prayer space bearing the scars and wounds from a hurtful and harsh world. We have lost our way; we have buried our dead in the wilderness; we have cowered in fear when you have called us into your Promised Land. We have followed false teachings, and we betrayed you and each other. But out of the ashes of this desolate wilderness, you have returned to us so you can take our pain and heal our scars and wounds.

Yahweh, our protector and our God, we have wandered off and cannot return back to you on our own. Thank you for sending your son, Jesus Christ, to bear our sins. Thank you for healing our pain and wounds and that you keep bringing us back into relationship with you.

I give my pain to you today, Jehovah Rapha (God Who Heals), and thank you for…

Dress our wounds with your healing balm, Great Healer. We feel the relief of your miraculous ways. We marvel at your mystery. We will tell of your mercy and healing to all who will listen. Be in the ears of those to whom we speak, so nations will know that you are the one true God.

With joy we praise you!


Cherie and Donovan Mutschler
