Waiting, Watching, and Wondering

Are you feeling impatient today?

Does the act of waiting six feet apart in long lines make you anxious?

Consider using this time as an opportunity to connect with the Holy.

Imagine each person in line as a candle light.

Each lit candle represents Hope, Peace, Joy, and Love.

As you wait and watch the line grow longer, try to wonder about God.

Now, take a deep breath. Feel the invisible power fill every inch of your being.

You are parked and ready to pray. Let us pray.

Holy One. Almighty and Merciful God, praise and thanks for your loving presence.

Let your Light of Love shine and remind us of your unconditional love.

Bless us with your Light of Hope that strengthens our faith.

Give us sight to see your Light of Joy in each day.

Fill us with your Light of Peace and Patience regardless of our circumstances.

Help us to embrace your ways and to live according to your will.

May your will be done in us and through us.

Gracious and Loving God, as we wait, watch and wonder, we thank you for hearing our prayers.

In Your Holy Name. Amen.

“Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weaknesses; for we do not know how to pray as we ought, but that very Spirit intercedes with sighs too deep for words. And God, who searches the heart, knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God” Romans 8:26–27 NSRV
