Although not strictly a prayer, these words frame prayer and are a prayerful call to enter into the journey of God’s presence.
You were born for the road.
You have a meeting to keep.
Where? With whom? You’ll see.
Your steps will be your words,
The road your song,
The weariness your prayers,
And at the end silence will speak to you.
Your head does not know
Where your feet are leading your heart,
But the Guide will be with you,
Walking before you.
You were born for the road,
The Pilgrim’s road.
Someone is coming to meet you
In the shrine at the road’s end,
In the shrine in the depths of your heart.
He is your peace.
He is your joy.
God walks with you.
– Pastor Rick Zweck (1953 – 2016)
– Although this is not strictly a prayer and we only publish prayers we made an exception because of how important to us Rick is and because this is a ‘call to prayer’. Rick used this poem to introduce the labyrinth journey and call people to follow Christ.
