Days in the Desert


Whether it’s waiting or working, it can sometimes feel like we are journeying through the desert with no end in sight. But it’s often in the desert that we learn the most about God, ourselves, and what we are grateful for in the present. May this prayer be a reminder of the spiritual landscape of the desert.


In these days that blur together,
may grace surprise me evermore.
When the world stops turning,
may I still see the splendor of earth.
As I labor beneath the scorching sun,
may I be grateful for the work.
Thank you, Lord, for desert days
that help me love you all the more.


Read this simple prayer in the morning, afternoon, and evening. Take note of how you experienced God’s love in the hours before, or what you are most thankful for in the present moment.
