Prayers in the Wilderness Day 39

We give you thanks, O God
Your steadfast love endures forever.
As we near the end of the wilderness journey
As we wait for the end of the story
The end that is the beginning
We see the beginning of the end.
We shape palm fronds into crosses and we remember
The stone rejected by the builders has become the cornerstone
So we celebrate this day you have made.
We give you thanks for hearing us,
For walking with us,
For not forsaking us now.
Even as the palms fade and the cross looms ahead
We give you thanks
For you are good
Your steadfast love endures forever.
