Jesus of the desert ways,
walk with us as we leave comforting truths
familiar certainties
and travel with you into the silence and empty spaces of the wilderness.
Strengthen us to live, stripped of illusions, with you:
Confronting ourselves and our demons and angels.
Resisting the glitter of easy answers.
Staying with you in our fear and doubt.
So that we may share your journey towards Easter morning.

Christian MacLean
