Our Good and Gracious God,

In this season of waiting, I pray that you will wait with me…

…in hope

…in peace

…with joy

and love.

I humbly pray that your holy, comforting presence keep watch with me

and my beloved who lays broken, waiting to be made whole.

Like Zechariah, may I embrace the silence of not knowing, with faith.

With Elizabeth, help me to have the courage to live through this season of waiting.

With Mary, lead me to a place in my heart that dares to sing with joy

in the midst of unanswered

questions.

In all these longings and pleas, may your Holy Spirit empower me and all I love

to be bold in claiming your gift of salvation, who came to us first as a tiny, fragile

baby, cradled in the hay of our humanity.

In the precious name of Yeshua. Emmanuel. Amen.
