Through the chaos,
O Eternal God,
grant us a vision.
In the midst of trouble,
O Merciful God,
grant us a clear path.
Before the cup of sorrows,
O Faithful God,
grant us a portion of joy.
Until the idolatry of power ends,
O Jealous God,
grant us a spirit of generosity.
From the world’s easy comforts,
O Demanding God,
grant us a desire for your freedom.
Rachel G. Hackenberg‘s book with co-author Martha Spong, Denial Is My Spiritual Practice (and Other Failures of Faith), searches for faith through life’s trials. Rachel has also written Writing to God and Sacred Pause.
