Ostriches

On this Lenten way,
O God of every good way
we pray for all that is to come:

for the path through stormy waters
and for those pummeled by the storm
until the 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
