Waiting in Hope

Truly the day of the Lord is great; terrible indeed—who can endure it? Yet even now, says the Lord, return to me with all your heart, with fasting, with weeping, and with mourning.
Joel 2:11-12
Waiting in silence,
waiting in hope,
we are your people,
we long for you, Lord.
Lord God, ever with us,
Emmanuel.
Come, Lord Jesus.
Maranatha!*

Waiting in silence,
waiting in hope,
we are your people,
we trust in your love.
O Sun of Justice,
true Prince of Peace,
Come with your justice, Lord.
Maranatha!

Waiting in silence,
waiting in hope,
we are your people,
Lord, we seek your truth.
Wisdom Incarnate,
teach us your way;
Show us the path of life.
Maranatha!

Waiting in silence,
waiting in hope,
we are your people,
we long for new life.
O Key of David,
open our hearts.
Give us new vision, Lord.
Maranatha!

Waiting in silence,
waiting in hope,
we are your people,
our hearts thirst for you.
Flower of Jesse,
bloom in our midst.
Make us your garden, Lord.
Maranatha!

Be like those who are waiting for their master.
 Luke 12:36
Prayer after thinking about today's devotion:
Waiting in silence,
waiting in hope,
we are your people,
we long for you, Lord.
Lord God, ever with us,
Emmanuel.
Come, Lord Jesus.
Maranatha!

After your own thanksgivings & petitions, close with the Lord's Prayer.

*Maranatha is a word in Jesus' native language (Aramaic) that means "Come, Lord."
