Psalm 61:1-8

Loving Divine Family,

We enter your sacred prayer space, calling out your name. We have wandered from your presence, distracted by the business and challenges of our lives. In an instant, you find us and lift us from our condition. You reveal that you are always with us, just as you have always been with our ancestors. You have given us the heritage of those who worked, worshipped, and waited with you on earth, and who also now sing your praises and cheer us on in the heavenly realm.

We feel overwhelmed with our circumstances, the crises of the world, war, inflation, and pandemics, to name a few. Thank you for hearing our prayers and cries of our hearts. We take comfort in your loving embrace and breathe in your loving presence. Thank you for fighting our battles.

I call out your name today, O Yahweh, and thank you for…

We return to you again and again. Each time we look away and call out to you, we find our home and comfort in your presence. We will remember to return to you in thanksgiving.

With joy we praise you!


Cherie and Donovan Mutschler
