Morning Prayer, Advent 2, 12.08.13

God with us and God still to come –advent2a

God with us in our waiting and our anticipation

God still to come in the fulfillment of your promise

God with us in our pain and our hurting

God still to come in our healing and our moving forward

God with us in our questions and our doubts

God still to come in our faith and our trust and our curiosity

God with us in our hopes and our dreams

God still to come in our future and all good things

God with us in our grieving and our longing

God still to come in the wounds that don’t seem to heal, and the loss that is never filled

God with us in our restlessness and our busyness

God still to come in the peace and shalom of your Kingdom

God with us in injustices and violence – seen and unseen

God still to come in the restoration and renewal of your Creation

God with us in our impatience and our hurry

God still to come in futures yet to be written

God with us in the ordinary moments of our lives – in our shoveling snow, our many layers and our errand-running

God still to come in our longed-for moments of extraordinary hope and joy

God with us in our breathing and our praying and our singing, be with us as we worship this day – come near in our thoughts and our words and our silence.

We pray all this with your Son – Emanuel –

Amen.
