Waiting

                                        

We give praise to Christ our Lord, the radiant light of the world. He guides our steps in a path of light and we no longer live in darkness. Let us turn to him in confident prayer:
May your word light up our way.
 
Christ, our Saviour, may we grow today in your likeness,
  may we gain through the second Adam what was lost by the first.
May your word light up our way.
 
May your word take flesh in our lives and your truth shine forth in our actions;
  may your love burn brightly within us.
May your word light up our way.
 
Teach us to work for the good of all, whether the time is right or not;
  make your Church a welcome light for the whole human family.
May your word light up our way.
 
May we always treasure your friendship and come to know its depth;
  may we atone for the sins against your wisdom and love.
May your word light up our way.
 
Universalis Liturgical Prayer














                                                                          I will wait for you
                                                 in the fury of my soul
                                                 and the darkness 
                                                 of my brokenness
                                                 to come, Oh Lord,
                                                 to heal what is not light
                                                 or a part of you.
                                                 I will wait...
