Undying Love


Divine One, as I with great heartache follow you to the cross, I continue to pray these words from the song in Godspell, 

Day by day, oh, dear Lord, 

three things I pray

To see thee more clearly

Love thee more dearly

Follow thee more nearly, day by day

Scripture Isaiah 53: 4-6

“Surely he has borne our infirmities and carried our diseases; yet we accounted him stricken, struck down by God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the punishment that made us whole, and by his bruises we are healed. 

All we like sheep have gone astray; we have all turned to our own way, and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all.”

Prayer of Response

Holy One,

How can we begin to respond

to the horror that You knew?

We are humbled, heartbroken,

and silenced…

Forgive us Holy One.

We pause to sit quietly in these moments,

mindful of all you have given…

Your eyes have always been on us.

Your heart has always been with ours. 

We are moved by Your undying love,

which knows no end.

It heals us and makes us new.

We desire to be Your loving reflection

and healing presence in the world around us. 

You are our life.

We continue to journey with You

through these holy days.
