Ecclesiastes 9:13-18

Loving Divine Family,

We enter your sacred prayer space into a time of silent contemplation. We hear your voice whispering to us through the trees. They softly sing hymns of praise to you. We hear Mother Earth and Grandparent Rocks telling stories of ancient times. Their songs and stories hold mystical memories and wisdom; yet only in this contemplative silence with you can we hear their voices. Their voices are in the wind that does not blow except through Life-giving Spirit breathing into our innermost being.

We quiet our hearts and minds so we can hear you and your wisdom. We pray: “Word of God speak; would you pour down like rain” (“Word of God Speak”, Bart Marshall Millard / Peter C Kipley). You respond, revealing your majesty, your instructions, and presence. Thank you for the guides who share their wisdom with us. Our hearts’ desire is for a peaceful life and not to destroy ourselves and others.

I hear your wisdom in the silence today, Mighty Creator, and thank you for…

Quiet our hearts and minds evermore, and give us ears to hear. We will seek your wisdom in the sounds of the setting sun and the bull moose calling to the dusk. We will seek your wisdom in Life-giving Spirit’s kiss as one last breeze touches our cheek. We will listen in this way, joining in your mystery, and we will understand.

With joy we praise you!


Cherie and Donovan Mutschler
