Genesis 16:1-14

Loving Divine Family,

We gather at Beer Lahai Roi, upon your Sacred Path. This deep well and Faith-marker of your chosen people brings us comfort. Like our ancestors, we struggle with relationships. We are despised by others; we despise others. But you call us to be still, and bow to your Divine Presence within each of your beautiful, perfect image-bearers.

Praise to you, El Roi (The God Who Sees Me). You know how many hairs are on our heads. You see us and care for us. When it feels like we are all alone and helpless, you are here with us. May we see you, hear you, and follow your instructions.

I quiet myself so I can hear your promises today, El Roi, and thank you for…

We praise you, LORD, because you live among and within us; you know our struggles. You draw close and breathe life into us when all we know is loneliness. We will remember your promises throughout the generations.

With joy we praise you!


Cherie and Donovan Mutschler
