Lent 2015…. Day 15… Isolation

isolation

Jsus you were alone in the desert

How did you cope ?

Is there a difference between being alone and lonely?

………………………………………

Yet being isolated feels like

I am drifting out a sea,

being separated, feeling remote

with no purpose, with no friends

…………………………

As I sail on your ocean

put me to port on solid ground

anchor me safe, grounded and

to be rooted in your love

…………………………………..

When I feel battered and windswept,

send your Spirit of gentleness to soothe my brow

When I feel tearful and lonely,

send your Spirit of friendship to my aid

When I feel vulnerable and anxious,

send your Spirit of peace to rest inside my heart

 

We ask this through Jesus,

who while on the cross,

he experienced separation form his family and friends

Amen
