Lord, help me be faithful.
As it gets more complicated and messy.
When each decision feels so very important.
When words won’t come. When actions fail.
Drown out the threats and fear and doubt.
Fill me with faithfulness. Shower me in hope. Spark in me, and us, and all your people – a new urgency. A fierce love. A bold witness. Born out of faith. And confidence. And focus. On you. With you. From you.
Your story. Your relationship. Your grace. Your justice. Your mission. Your love. Your You.
O Lord, right now, whatever comes, whatever is, whatever you’ll have me do and say and try and be….
Help me be faithful.
Help me be faithful.
Help me be faithful in serving you.
Amen.
