Water and the Word: Wilderness Road

Wilderness Road

 

Acts 8:26 Then an angel 

of the Lord said to Philip, 

“Get up and go toward the south 

to the road that goes down 

from Jerusalem to Gaza.” 

(This is a wilderness road.) 
 

 

God, you plan the intersecting paths 

of disparate travelers on remote highways; 

you open minds wide to imagine ways 

to do things never thought of before; 

 

you plant visions of combining 

technologies and components 

into newly dreamed configurations; 

 

you give us the water of life 

and a thirst to see it flow everywhere; 

you weave a broad and deep tapestry 

of life that never ceases to amaze us. 

 

Give us ears to hear, eyes to see, 

minds to grasp, hands and feet to serve; 

most of all, give us hearts to hold, 

so we might continue along the warp and woof 

of your life-giving dreams.
