Song of Solomon 8:5-14

Loving Divine Family,

We enter your sacred prayer space as your children–innocent in your eyes, full of passion for life and love. You have made us aware of our humanness. We lust and long for each other. You fill the air with pure thoughts. They shower around us, and we feel your perfect love.

What is love? What is lust? We long to be desired, to be wanted, cared about; we long for passion, romance, intimacy, to be seen–to be known. But we discover that these longings last for a brief moment and leave us feeling even more lost. In this time, we long for you, O Lover of our souls. Place us like a seal over your heart. We receive your breath in this intimate, sacred time, and declare our love for you. May our love for you continue to grow.

I feel your loving guidance in my thoughts and heart today, O LORD, and thank you for…

Burn within us like a blazing fire, O LORD. Fan the flame of your love in us so we will look upon each other and your creation with your holy love. Guide our hearts and actions, so we will honour each other.

With joy we praise you!


Cherie and Donovan Mutschler
