Make straight in the desert a highway for our God. The uneven ground shall become level, and the rough places a plain. Then the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all people shall see it together. (Isaiah 40:1-5)
Jesus, our hope, enable us to wait for you in humble prayer. You always listen to those who suffer and who lay down their sorrows in you. You set us free from what obscures our way forward, and you bring us a healing of the soul.
