Communal Psalms of Lament, day 2

From Psalms for Praying: An Invitation to Wholeness (Nan C. Merrill).

Psalm 60

O Beloved, why do we believe that
we can separate ourselves
from You, feeling like
aliens in a foreign land?
O, that we might return to
the Light.

You know how much we tremble with fear;
help us to break down the walls,
to let go of illusions, for
we want to stand tall.


You, who are Love, gave us leeway
to choose,
to wander far from home.

O Beloved, be gracious unto us,
welcome us back into new life,
hear our prayer!


Who dares to face their fears, to
break down the prison walls,

O grant us help to answer the call,
strengthen us with pure resolve!
With the Beloved we shall triumph;
with Love we shall be free!
