Our hearts are longing to hear from you,
but we do not know if we can handle the truth.
We long for you to take us by the hand,
but we do not know if we want to go
where you will lead,
we know we cannot stay where we are.
Hear our prayers, O God.
Speak to us of Heavenly things ...
things that reflect citizenship in your kin-dom.
Speak to us of love
Speak to us of compassion
Speak to us, Redeemer!
Speak to us of the things that matter
more than the things we cling to ...
more than the idols we lift up before you.
Hear the cries of your people, Lord.
We are crying out for Truth over dishonesty,
for peace over war,
for genuine relationship over transactional contracts.
Come and live among us, Spirit of Truth,
and transform our living
into the holy living
to which you have called us,
putting others ahead of self,
protecting our most vulnerable,
supporting the marginalized,
and healing the broken by listening them into wholeness
and loving them into life.
