When God Walks Away: A Dark Night Companion

When God Walks Away: A Dark Night Companion

PRAYERS OF SUFFERING

Jesus, it is our deepest honor to suffer alongside You: with children who ache for tenderness, with teens whose only companion is loneliness, with workers who endure mind-numbing jobs to provide for their families, with parents who stand baffled before their children’s graves. Whatever it takes, strengthen us that we may accompany Your suffering with our own. Amen.

I can’t stop crying, Jesus. Weep with me. Amen

My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?

 

Darkness invades the afternoon sky. In a final act of reckless faith, Jesus entrusts His spirit to an absent Father. He gives up everything. Every thing.

Now we stand, hushed and open, in the mouth of a cave. Listen. Is someone whispering our name?
