Psalm 12:1-8

Loving Divine Family,

We enter your sacred prayer space seeking refuge from the harshness of the world around us. We feel deserted and abandoned, even by communities of faith where we once felt welcomed and where our needs were met. We look around now and feel unfulfilled and misunderstood. But we hear your familiar voice call our names and feel your loving arms wrap around us. With you, we feel understood and we are at home. You reveal to us that only through you can we find true community.

Thank you, our LORD and defender, for protecting us and keeping us safe. You are our all-in-all. You love and care for us, even when we decide our own paths. Thank you for always being here for us.

I seek community with you today, Loving Yahweh, and thank you for…

Hold us close and never let us go. Protect us from the false belief that we are lost, lonely, and forgotten. Instead, give us the discernment to recognize that these feelings are your call to return to you. Open our eyes to see your path so we may follow where you lead, and stay true to your calling.

With joy we praise you!

Amen!

Cherie and Donovan Mutschler
