Pray with Psalm 25

To you, O LORD, I lift up my soul,

my God, in you I trust;

Make known to me your ways, LORD;

teach me your paths.

Guide me by your fidelity and teach me,

for you are God my savior,

for you I wait all the day long.

AMEN

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.

Silence is the language of God, all else is poor translation.
