Luke 18:18-30

Loving Divine Family,

We enter your sacred prayer space concerned about the decisions we need to make and the unknown barriers along your path. We see the sick, old and dying, and are surprised at their faith through trials. We fear we cannot make the decision to leave behind our idols and household gods so we can follow you with our whole hearts. The thought of walking away from all we love seems so impossible. But you remind us, once again, that all things are possible for you.

Thank you. Your ways are not our ways. We are at the crossroads and hear the warm invitation to follow you, to let go and let God. We want to hold on to everything that is dear to us. Thank you, Spirit, for reminding us “What is impossible with [people] is possible with God.” We open our hands to let go and to receive you. We choose to follow you.

I place my trust in you today, Mighty God, and thank you for…

We are overwhelmed and surprised by many unexpected events in our lives. We are flooded especially by times of loss, grief, chaos, and uncertainty. But none of these are a surprise for you, LORD. You have already prepared the way for us, if we will only trust and believe in you. We hear your calming voice of assurance calling us onto our path for today’s journey. We step forward in absolute faith, the same faith of our ancestors as they walked this ancient path with you.

With joy we praise you!

Amen!

Cherie and Donovan Mutschler
