On this Lenten way,
O God of every life-giving way
we pray for a new thing to spring forth:
for the path through stormy waters
and for those pummeled by the storm
until a dry path becomes clear;
for the avenues toward peace
and for those surrounded by warring chariots
until the rage of war is quenched;
for the riverbeds of restoration
and for those parched in the wilderness
until the rainy season comes;
for the intersections of community
and for those bypassed for their imago dei
until the crossroads are the heart.
Make a holy way
through this Lenten way,
we pray. Amen.
on Isaiah 43:16-21
