A Prayer from Walter Brueggemann

We have heard of your wondrous power,
the ways in which you make newness,
the ways in which you defeat death,
the ways in which you give life.
We trust you in the night while we sleep;
we rise early in the morn to find you alert, active, engaged.
You dazzle us day and night.

Yet we notice the place where
you are curbed,
you are fringed,
you are held.

Your newness we do not see...so we wait.
Keep us easy at night in our wait.
Keep us vigilant in day while we wait.
Keep our wait fixed on you
you alone,
you and none other...and we will rejoice. Amen
