Psalm 73:1-28

Loving Divine Family,

We enter your sacred prayer space feeling troubled. We see the ways of the arrogant and self-centred in this world. We see how they seem to prosper and get ahead while those who are faithful to you struggle each day to make ends meet. We tear down the arrogant with harsh thoughts, words, and actions as we grumble the days away and hurl curses at them. But you draw near to us and remind us of your promise to prosper us and not forsake us. You encourage us to focus on you and your desires for us, so we may see and receive your blessings. 

Oh LORD, we have kept our eyes on our situations and minded everyone else’s business, instead of keeping our eyes on you. We have complained and allowed anger, bitterness, jealousy, self-pity, and hostility to take over our minds, spirits, and bodies. We acted like brute beasts destroying everything around us. Like a caring parent you are close beside us, waiting for us to stop our temper-tantrums so we can experience your loving presence and all the blessings you have in store for us. Thank you for always being close to us and guiding us.

I focus on you and your desires for me today, Mighty God, and thank you for…

How good it is to be with you in your sanctuary, O LORD! We have no place else to go. There is no other god but you. We seek your guidance. Guard our hearts, so we will remain with you and walk your path in a good way.

With joy we praise you!

Amen!

Cherie and Donovan Mutschler
