Prayers in the Wilderness Day 3

Jesus, Son of Mary,
As the busyness of life intrudes on my day old promises,
As I find it difficult to hear your voice amongst the clatter,
As I try to force my weary mind to concentrate,
I remember that you went through the wilderness ahead of me;
You felt hunger and knew thirst,
And you were sustained.
You came through,
And came out to begin your ministry.
Jesus, Son of God,
As I remember your willingness to become one of us,
To feel what we feel,
And to know what it is to live among us,
I ask that you
Sustain me,
Shelter me,
Be my refuge and stronghold,
That I may find my way into this wilderness,
And draw ever closer to you.
Amen.
