John 16:16-24

Loving Divine Family,

We call out your name in our anguish. Our fears run deep and threaten to overtake us. But you draw near and invite us into your sacred prayer space. You reveal to us your plan for a new birth in our lives. Like the earth in springtime, you are creating a new work in us, and will make us full participants in your mystery.

Trusted Companion, you long to have a meaningful relationship with us. It brings you great joy to care for us and give us what we need. Thank you for creating the space for us to ask for what we need. Thank you for the gift of joy.

I trust you in the liminal spaces today, O LORD, and thank you for…

Stay with us in our fear and sorrow. Walk us through our grief as we let go of our old ways and wisdom. Speed to our aid, make haste to replace our sorrows with new joy in the fullness of your promises. 

With joy we praise you!


Cherie and Donovan Mutschler
