Prayer Path: Station 6
A Table in the Wilderness for a Hungry Crowd
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
Jesus crossed to the far shore of the Sea of Galilee. He looked up and saw a great crowd coming toward him. “Where shall we find bread for these people to eat?” Peter said, “Here is a boy with five small barley loaves and two small fish, but how far will they go among so many?” Jesus took the loaves and the fish, gave thanks, and distributed to those who were seated as much as they wanted…”Let nothing be wasted, “ Jesus said. And his disciples gathered twelve baskets of leftovers... from John 6
What do I notice or feel as I look at this picture?
What is making me skeptical of God’s care in my life?
Can God really provide a table in the wilderness of skepticism and anxiety?
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.
