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.
(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
in the wilderness.
The land we walk is rugged and rough.
We find no straight highways.
Only deep valleys and
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
Come to us with your power and might.
Come and comfort
gather us as
lambs in your arms
