Matthew 8:1-13

Loving Divine Family,

We are wise in the ways of the world. We gather at your Beautiful Gate filled with skills, abilities and gifts, which all come from your blessing hand. But who among us can number our days? Who can provide everlasting life but you, LORD? We enter your prayer space, seeking your mercy for ourselves, family, and community.

Thank you, Loving Divine Family, for having time for us and not turning us away. Thank you for the people in our lives that show us how to ask for help and to show you respect and honour. May our lives show us the works of your love and blessings.

I seek your healing in my life today, O LORD, and thank you for…

We receive your healing and tender mercies. We believe we shall see your goodness in the land of the living. We wait on you with courage as we sojourn together on your Ancient Path.

With joy we praise you!


Cherie and Donovan Mutschler
