Acts 13:1-12

Loving Divine Family,

We enter your sacred prayer space and feel the familiarity of calm, shallow water. But you remind us that you did not create us to remain in the shallows. You call us to the deep; we respond to you and step into new directions. We trust in your guidance; you have prepared the way for us. 

Loving God, you call us by name to leave what is familiar and comfortable and to journey into the unknown. There are imposters who use deception, illusions, and hiding to prevent us from knowing you and having a relationship with you. But your mysterious ways reveal the truth and bring peace. May we become the people you have destined us to be. May our eyes be open to the truth.

I trust in your guidance today, Loving LORD, and thank you for…

Fill us with your Holy Spirit, so we will respond with your truth when we greet others. Fill us with your mercy, so we will respond with kindness when we are opposed. Remain close to us, so we will remain focused on you in all we do.

With joy we praise you!


Cherie and Donovan Mutschler
