We wait and put our hope in your unfailing love… ( a prayer)


Just a draft of a prayer based on my relfections  on Psalm 33:20-22 which we are using as a call to worship at church  … waiting on God and putting our trust in his unfailing love.


O God,

In the midst of our lostness

In the joy of being found

In the efforts of our endeavours: successes and failings

In the glow of great joy and happiness

In the sting of pain and sorrow and grief

Through the shining brightness of doing right

And the gapping darkness of injustice

We wait and put our hope in your unfailing love

O Lord,

Love that stepped down to serve

Love that was rejected and scorned

Love tortured and nailed to rough wood

Love dead and buried

Love raised and alive

Love in ever abiding presence

Love that in glorious hope will return again

We put our trust in your unfailing love

O God Father, Son and spirit,

We have done wrong and left so much good undone

Forgive us, restore us and make us whole

Fill us a fresh with your presence

Lead us and guide us in your right ways

Enable and empower to share your love

To be the body of Christ together in this place

To embody Christ in your world and bring hope

We put our trust in your unfailing love
