Luke 9:18-27

Loving Divine Family,

We enter your sacred prayer space seeking you. We seek you with preconceived understandings of who you are, taught to us by our ancestors, past generations, and religions. We feel you draw near to us. Life-giving Spirit surrounds us like the air we breathe. We feel your breath on our necks; your lips press to our ears. You whisper to us, “Who do you say I am?” Your question stirs within us. We feel the scales of human understanding fall away as you draw us deeper into your mystery.

Loving Divine Family, thank you for creating us in your image and knitting yourself and our core values into us. Along the way we have started becoming what others say about us, by our work and our stature in life. We start to live into these human labels instead of seeing them as false. The call to deny ourselves and take up our cross daily and follow you hurts so deeply because we want to hold onto these false images of ourselves. Thank you for the invitation to let go of our false selves and develop the daily practice of focusing on you. This brings us to be who you created us to be.

I fall into the depths of your love and mystery today, Loving Creator, and thank you for…

Fill us with your love so that it may overflow into others. Remove from us the limitations of human understanding and replace our lack of understanding with your mystery and limitless purpose, love, and gentleness. We long to know your ways more each day.

With joy we praise you!

Amen!

Cherie and Donovan Mutschler
