Matthew 26:6-13

Loving Divine Family,

We gather at Ebenezer, your Stone of Help. We are fully transparent before you. You see us for who we are. You see what we try to hide. You see what is within us. We are alabaster jars filled with your gifts and abilities, waiting to be poured out.

In your healing presence, we soak up your pure love, peace, and calmness. May our prayers and worship be a pleasing aroma that brings joy to you.

I am transparent and soft before you today, O LORD, and thank you for…

As we pour our best out for you, protect us from judgement of others. Protect us from judging those who are also pouring out their best for you. Receive our gifts, and use them as a pleasing aroma. We believe we will see your goodness in this land of the living. We celebrate your help and faithfulness.

With joy we praise you!


Cherie and Donovan Mutschler
