Sunday Solitude

Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed. (Luke 5:16)

We continue our 40-day journey with Jesus to the Cross and beyond.

Be like Jesus. Get alone with your Heavenly Father and pray.

Here’s today’s prayer suggestion. Pray through it with all your heart, soul and mind:

LORD,

high and holy,
meek and lowly,
You have brought me
to the valley of vision,
where I live in the depths
but see You in the heights;
hemmed in by mountains of sin
I behold Your glory.

Let me learn by paradox that
the way down is the way up,
that to be low is to be high,
that the broken heart
is the healed heart,
that the contrite spirit
is the rejoicing spirit,
that the repenting soul
is the victorious soul,
that to have nothing
is to possess all,
that to bear the cross
is to wear the crown,
that to give
is to receive,
that the valley
is the place of vision.

AMEN

(Adapted from the Puritan prayer The Valley of Vision)
