Lenten Hump Day Prayer: Psalm 137

Beside the rivers of Babylon, we sat and wept
as we thought of Jerusalem.
We put away our harps,
hanging them on the branches of poplar trees.  (NLT)

We grieve and we weep our Father God,

from a soul place that is torn

fragment,

disillusioned,

broken,

imperfect,

sinful.

We are not who we think we are.

We are not where we should be.

We are in exile

and it is a lonely place.

Jesus, come to us again!

Redeem us.

Forgive us.

Bring us to our senses and bring us home.

Where the Father waits with open arms.

Holy Spirit,

revive us

give us clean hearts

give us dry eyes and tender souls.

We have sat and wept

as Your son wept for Jerusalem

Home.

Amen
