Week of Prayer for Christian Unity Day Two
1 What in your church are you waiting for?
I am waiting for more people who want to really make a difference in the community; I know it will happen one day and I just have to wait for others to know the same.
2 What in your church are you impatient about?
Change; it seems to take an age and I'm not good at planning forever.
3 Is ‘patient waiting’ something that we readily embrace or are we anxious to get things done?
I am not good at waiting, definitely not at patiently waiting, others are; we need the both in our churches and communities and to understand each other.
God of hope, you are patient with your Church, and with me. Maybe I too will wait - disconcerting though this may be - and risk the change, and the pain, that may come as I wait to be free and released into your unity. Amen.
