In our faithlessness you have not turned your back on us, and we anchor our hope to your embodied faithfulness in Jesus Christ.
May we be quick to confess our faithlessness.
We are complacent regarding the brokenness and groaning around us and in us, and we reason away and justify our faithlessness with terms other than “sin.”
May we be quick to embody your faithfulness.
Make us ready to join you in your work, following you into the grieving and groaning spaces that fill our countries, towns, families, churches, and inner lives through Jesus Christ our Lord; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, One God, now and forever. Amen.
