Prayer for February 20: Please pray with me. God of creation, you walk with us in the wilderness. You wander with us when we are lost. You traveled with the people of Israel as they journeyed in the wilderness for 40 years. You cast Jesus out into the wilderness where he spent 40 days facing temptation. Be with us in our time of wilderness. We feel lost, yet, this is temporary. Just as the Israelites came out of the wilderness into the promised land and just as Jesus came out of the wilderness to start his ministry, we know we will also come out of the wilderness where you want us to be. Give us patience to keep going through the wilderness until our journey is done. Amen.
