Prepare the way

        It is written in the prophet Isaiah:
        See, I am sending my messenger ahead of you,
                who will prepare your way;
        the voice of one crying out in the wilderness:
                “Prepare the way of the Holy One,
                make straight a path for God.”
                                                —Mark 1.2-3

God, how shall I prepare your way?
How might I announce your coming?
How might I live to make your coming plain?
How will I think, speak and act this day
as a messenger of grace
so those who yearn may hope,
and those who sit in darkness and the shadow of death
may rejoice?
How do you enable me to live this gospel?
What path are you making in my heart?

How are you preparing your way in me?
Let me see, and hear,
and trust,
and follow
Amen.
