Prayer Path: Station 2
A Table in the Wilderness for Israel
O Lord, can you really spread a table in the wilderness of life? Walk with me as I walk this path of the cross, honest questions of life in my heart, and my face turned to find the table you have spread in the wilderness for so many before me, and now also for me. Amen
In the desert, the whole community of Israel grumbled against Moses and Aaron… you have brought us out into this desert to starve! Then the Lord said, I will rain down bread from heaven for you… in the morning, thin flakes like frost on the ground appeared on the desert floor. The people of Israel called the bread manna. It was white like coriander seed and tasted like wafers made with honey…from Exodus 16
What do I notice as I look at this picture?
What is making me grumble and worry?
Can God really provide a table in the wilderness of grumbling and worry?
Take heart, my child. I will not let the cross you bear grow beyond your endurance. My Father attends you. He is your Father too. All that is needed His hand is providing.
We adore you, O Christ, and we bless you because by your life, your death and your resurrection you have shown us how God always spreads a table in the wilderness, in the face of all our fears. Amen.
