Listen and Act


Joseph is silent

He listens and acts


Lord, help us listen

Still the noise around us and in us

Still the urgency and anxiety

Still the destruction and falsehood

ONE: Lord, help us listen

Break through with your still, small voice

with your calm and clarity

with your leading and light

ALL: You reveal the needed next steps

You provide all we need to make the journey

ONE: Lord, help us listen and help us act

Wondrous God


Your joy is our strength


Nothing more

Nothing less

Nothing else


Grant us grace to receive you and your joy

Grant us grace to trust it above all other powers and plans

Grant us grace to bear it and share it as generously as you


For the honor is yours

The majesty is yours

and Your kingdom is at hand


 Your Joy is Our Strength © 2019 Lisa Ann Moss Degrenia, www.revlisad.com

Prayer for Holy Saturday

There are so many things we do not understand

So many ways we long for change and closure

Help us to trust you

even when the situation is desperate and out of control

Help us to follow you

even when the way unclear

Help us to wait and rest

even when every bit of us screams to act

Build in us a faith that endures

Even when we can’t see you

Or feel you near

Or understand

A faith that endures the waiting

The grief of now and not-yet 

The ache of in-between

The pregnant pause

Your power and goodness are never diminished

Morning is coming
