Good Friday, 2021
Be with us during this time of intense waiting. You know our hearts are weak, looking to fill us up with false idols. Despite your loving grace, we are constantly drawn to earthly and fleeting pleasures.
It is good for us to spend this Lent controlling our desires for satisfaction.
It is good for us to find ways to pour out our blessing on others.
It is good for us to spend time on our knees, at your feet.
Bless us, oh Lord, as we sojourn through this season of plentiful desert-existence.
You are our love,
our dearest friend,
our cherished counselor.
Give us peace, oh Lord, as we wrestle with our own over-abundance.
You are our rock,
our strength. Amen.
