Until the sun dawns on a day of equity,
dear God — be God.

Until creation is new like the spring,
dear God — be God.

Until your goodness ripens like a harvest,
dear God of mercy — be God.

Until your revelation is not obscured by lies,
dear God of insight — be God.

Until your prophets are not drowned out by idol worship,
o jealous God — be God.

Until your word resounds from earth to heaven,
o relentless God — be God.

Until every mountain is made low,
God, be our deliverance.

Until every tear is comforted,
God, be our companion.

Until every horn of oil overflows with blessing,
let there be no other God.

  1. Rachel, I depend on your Sunday prayers– for me, for my congregation. I don’t thank you enough… I couldn’t. But thank you today, and thank you again, and thank you for the next time I’ll be too rushed on a Sunday to remember to thank you.
