Jonah 3:1-10

Loving Divine Family,

We enter your sacred prayer space seeking your support for our judging attitudes. We see how others disregard your guidance and teachings. They are violent and vulgar in our eyes and we wish you would annihilate them with your sovereign power. But you remind us that you have called us to be your voice in this world, to show your love, and to bring messages of hope to those who do not know you. You remind us that you never withhold the full measure of your love from anyone.

Loving Yahweh, you care for us, want the best for us, and long for a relationship with us, your creation. But we are stubborn, and we wander off and become destructive. Thank you for the prophets who you send our way to share your love with us. We bow our hearts and minds to you and turn to you. Thank you for relenting the destruction. Thank you for receiving us back with loving arms and a heart full of joy.

I hear your call to be your voice of hope in this world today, Loving Yahweh, and thank you for…

Remain near us, Yahweh, so we will keep from condemning those whom you love. Keep us from passing judgement on others. Fill us with your love and compassion, so we will see others as you see them, and love others as you love them. We give ourselves to you so we will be your voice in this world.

With joy we praise you!
