Waiting for Jesus: A Prayer of Lament
“The messenger of the covenant in whom you delight—
indeed, he is coming, says the Lord of hosts.” Malachi 3:1
many of us are waiting for you:
the war-torn are waiting for peace,
the hungry are waiting for bread.
the refugees are waiting for a homeland,
the sick are waiting for healers.
Have you forgotten us?
O Lord, come quickly, we pray.
