Opening Prayers/Prayers of Adoration on Understanding

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

God of the Impossible – Father, Son and Holy Spirit: 

There’s nothing too hard for you to do, 

Nothing too complex for You to understand, 

No place we go that You’re not there, 

No sin too heinous that You’ll not forgive, 

And no time when You cease to love Your own. 

You amaze us with Your power and creativity; 

You overwhelm us with Your grace and love. 

Thank You! 

Thank You for inviting us to come as we are, not as we aren’t; 

upheld by your compassion and grace 

so we can freely confess to you our sin,  

duplicity and self-absorption. 

In the quiet, Lord, now hear our whispered confessions 

of what we’re too ashamed to say aloud to anyone but You, 

for You know us intimately – and still loves us immensely. 

 Richard Herman
