1 Samuel 25:23-35

Loving Divine Family,

We enter your sacred prayer space, unaware of the full extent to which you will call us out of our normal routines. We make plans each day for what we will do, who we will see, and how we wish to spend our day. But you call us out of our comfort zones. Even now, you call to us to come quickly. We feel compelled to respond. Indeed, you are the God of beautiful interruptions.

Praise to you, LORD, the battle belongs to you! May we let go of our anger and expectations, especially when you bring them to our attention. Guard us from taking matters into our own hands.

I hear you calling me to come quickly today, O Yahweh, and thank you for…

We will be obedient to your calling and instructions, so when we feel compelled to act, we will know how to follow. In this war-torn and damaged world, we stand ready to come quickly, to answer your call, and once again nurture and care for your creation and each other.

With joy we praise you!


Cherie and Donovan Mutschler
