God of the Wilderness

If you are in the wilderness, God is going before you to help you. In Exodus 17:6, God told Moses, “I am going to stand there in front of you,” when he led Moses to an unlikely source of provision. CIL prayed this together twice during our Sunday service, and you can pray it with us now. (This is a picture of the Sinai wilderness)
 
God of the wilderness,
You go before and await our coming.
May our desire for you compel us
beyond complaint to conversation,
beyond rejection to relationship.
Pour your love into our hearts,
that, refreshed and renewed,
we may invite others to the living water
given to us in Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
