Acts 11:27-30

Loving Divine Family,

We see the world around us and feel concern about threats that are out of our control. War, famine, floods, climate change, pandemics, and so many other big concerns threaten us and our futures. But when we enter your sacred prayer space, we come face-to-face with you. We hear your voice in creation; we feel Life-giving Spirit in the wind around us. You remind us of your greatness and that you are still in control of the universe.

In this quiet, precious time with you, we silence ourselves to hear you and receive your gifts. Thank you for preparing us for this time with you, for this day, and for what is to come. You extravagantly shower us with your love, so we can give out of our abundance to those in need. Praise to you, loving Yahweh.

I remember your loving ways today, Mighty Creator, and thank you for…

We give you thanks for the Elders you have provided to our community and our families throughout the ages. We seek to honour them and you by listening to their wisdom and providing for them. Take our gifts and multiply them for the sake of those around us. 

With joy we praise you!

Amen!

Cherie and Donovan Mutschler
