Numbers 16:41-50

Loving Divine Family,

Who are we, O LORD, that you should have mercy upon us? We grumble against you for our hardships, day and night. But when we enter your sacred prayer space–this holy tent of meeting–you reveal your true might and power and true gentle affection for us.

We enter your presence today, seeking protection and advice. We humble ourselves before you and acknowledge you are our God. We have been murmuring and complaining about you, our circumstances, and your creation. Thank you for longing to be in relationship with us and wanting reconciliation with us. Thank you for all those who have, who are, and who will intercede for us. We take our lives for granted, and do not think about the prayers of others interceding for us.

I receive your gentle affection for me today, Loving Yahweh, and thank you for…

We give thanks for your Elders, Water-carriers, and Knowledge-keepers within our community, who hear your voice and intercede for us. Thank you for your kindness and mercy, and for sparing us from your wrath. Your love endures us. We will shout your praises forever!

With joy we praise you!
