Prayer on Maundy Thursday

Jesus, Servant

Your towel around your waist
you are washing the feet of your disciples including Judas
including me
a parable for all of us

Jesus Servant

with a loaf and a cup before you
you broke bread and shared wine at the table
you are broken open and poured out
for us

Jesus servant
on your knees in the garden
grieving in your soul as you ask for direction
must you drink the cup of suffering
your struggle is for us

Jesus servant
you keep calling me to drink the cup
of serving
breaking open
pouring out

Jesus, servant
be with me today
as I sit by the cross
and ponder this life
with you
