Prayer Reflection: Isaiah

Here’s a prayer reflection inspired by either Isaiah 42:1-4, 6-7 or Isaiah 40:1-4, 9-11.  It was written by Anne Osdieck.

Prayer Reflection
(inspired by Isaiah 42:1-4, 6-7 or Isaiah 40:1-5, 9-11)

Here is my servant whom I uphold,
my chosen one with whom I am pleased

We cry
in the wilderness.
The land we walk is rugged and rough.
We find no straight highways.
Only deep valleys and
high mountains.

Jesus,
a light for us
and for all nations,
grasp us by the hand.
Open the eyes of the blind,
bring prisoners out from their cells,
from the darkness those whose eyes are
blinded.

Come to us with your power and might.
Come and comfort
your people.

Like a
shepherd,
gather us as
lambs in your arms
