Prayer Path: Station 7
A Table in the Wilderness for Jesus
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
On reaching the Mount of Olives, Jesus withdrew about a stone’s throw beyond his disciples, knelt down and prayed, “Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done.” And being in anguish, he prayed more earnestly, and his sweat was like drops of blood falling to the ground. An angel from heaven appeared to him and strengthened him...from Luke 22
What do I notice or feel as I look at this picture?
Where am I in anguish?
Can God really provide a table in the wilderness of anguish and abandonment?
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.
