Prayer: On Participatory Waiting

Oh Lord, our God
You have pardoned us – giving hope to all of creation
Our hearts long and our bodies groan
For full redemption of your coming Kingdom

You made the world good
Ever since you’ve been on a mission
To bring the world back to that goodness
So we eagerly wait that day

Our waiting will not be passive
It will be participatory
We wait with our hands and our feet
We wait by bringing your kingdom where it can’t be found

May you burst resurrection into our lives
May we use everything at our disposal to bring your kingdom forth
May you come quickly
May our lives be full of hope that inspires your kingdom

Amen.
