1st week of Lent


Waiting in the Wilderness

This is the wilderness time, when every path is obscure and thorns have grown around the words of hope. Be the wings of our strength, O God, in this time of wilderness waiting. This is the time of stone, not bread, when even the sunrise feels uncertain and everything tastes of bitterness. Be the wings of our strength, O God, in this time of wilderness waiting. This is the time of ashes and dust, when darkness clothes our dreams and no star shines a guiding light. Be the wings of our strength, O God, in this time of wilderness waiting. This is the time of treading life, waiting for the swells to subside and for the chaos to clear. Be the wings of our strength, O God, in this time of wilderness waiting.

– Keri Wehlander, Canada from 600 Blessings and Prayers from Around the World
