An Easter lamentation

The Lord Is My Chef Breakfast Recipe for the Soul, Wednesday in the Octave of Easter, 15 April 2020

Acts of the Apostles 3:1-10 <*(((>< +++ ><)))*> Luke 24:13-35

Dearest Jesus Christ:

It is the Easter Season but the way things are happening in our country today calls us to express our lamentations to you, O Lord.

Come to us, Lord Jesus in this darkest hours of our lives when we feel like joining the two disciples returning to Emmaus to leave everything and go back to our previous life.

Nobody seems to care at all: children are in the streets, adults in massive gatherings, everybody complaining, and worst of all, our leaders cramming at how to address this crisis without any definite plans as they have been lying to us since the beginning.

The only glimmer of hope we find these days are from our frontliners who strive to serve everyone despite the fact they have been taken for granted for so long.

Send us more new leaders – not recycled liars – who can be like Peter and John willing to be your instruments to raise us up again and set us free to stand again for what is true.

Open also our eyes, Lord, to see more of the possibilities available in the midst of the confusions around and within us.

Give us the Spirit of wisdom and encouragement for others losing hope and directions.

Help us to persevere more along with others who have seen and experienced you especially in the breaking of bread. Amen.
