Prayer: Through the Waiting

Here’s a prayer for Advent from the Christian Aid website.


Accompany us, God,
through the waiting.
Accompany those displaced
waiting to return to the land.
Accompany those in refugee camps
waiting to go home.
Accompany those in conflict zones
waiting for normality.
Accompany those in violent homes
waiting for silence.
Accompany those imprisoned
waiting for justice.
Accompany us God
through the waiting
until your kingdom comes.
