Genesis 15:1-18

Loving Divine Family,

We enter your sacred prayer space, seeking your light. You have told us of your love for us; our ancestors and descendants live in the embrace of your love. But your promise to sustain us throughout the ages also comes with stories that break our hearts. We feel the dreadful darkness of fear for ourselves and for future  generations. You did not promise us an easy path, but that you will always walk with us. We lose our loved ones, parents and children, young and old. You give and take away all things in your timing, but always draw all things to your embrace. Hold us close, and help us to remember the stories of your mercy and love.

Loving Yahweh, we hear you remind us to not be afraid. You bless us. Thank you for being our shield. Your presence brings us peace. You talk to us in mysterious ways. May we know you, hear you, and obey you.

I feel you holding me close today, Loving Yahweh, and thank you for…

Meet us in our ceremony; bring your sacred fire and accept our offerings of prayer. Break bread with us and invite us into your mystery, where all things make sense to us. We will walk your path with faith.

With joy we praise you!

Amen!

Cherie and Donovan Mutschler
