Mosaic Gathering Prayer: December 22, 2019
God of kings and shepherds,
God of teenage mothers and step-parents,
God of angel choruses and starlight—
We confess to waiting.
We have waited to extend grace.
We have waited to say, “I love you.”
We have waited to apologize.
We have waited to be just,
Choosing comfort and convenience over the needs of our neighbors. We have waited—
Waited for someone else to make a move,
Waited for a sign,
Waited until it was our issue.
You ask us to be the body of Christ, but in many ways, we have waited.
Remind us of your love for each of us and this world. Your love can’t wait.
In your name we pray, Amen.
