A Prayer for Saturday, December 12, 2015

Watch (Pt. 6)

O God,

Show us how to watch for
the coming of your Son.

Help us to watch for his
coming to us at all times.

Help us to look for the ways
he has come to us in the past.

Let us learn from all of our experiences
and from all the ways that Jesus has
made his presence known to us.

Help us to look for the ways
he will come to us in the future.

Let us anticipate his next coming
with hope, trust, and openness.

But especially help us to look for the ways
he comes to us in the present.

Don’t let us get so caught up in looking back
or looking forward that we fail to experience
fully what he is doing in, with, for, and through
us here and now. Let us live every second of
every day with our lives wide open to his presence.
