lenten prayer: day 12

Prayer of Waiting


Lord God, thank You for waiting
For forcing ourselves in the intentional rhythms of creation,
Even at the moments when we want most to be in control
These are the places You draw us in, asking for our trust
Telling us that this dance You are teaching us
Has a heartbeat that doesn’t always mirror our own
Show us what we miss in the rush to seek knowledge before wisdom
May we learn to be fully present even in the mistakes
In the moments where we are barely surviving on uncertainty and doubt,
Remind us that they are a part of faith, not an enemy of it
In all the ways we don’t get it,
May we ever trust the steps of the Carpenter.
AMEN
