11/29/11 Tuesday Prayer (inspired by Isaiah 40)

One:  "Comfort, O comfort my people, says your God."

Many:  May we not become so comfortable, that we are not able to accept the discomfort that sometimes comes with comforting others.

One:  We may sometimes be people we did not expect to be;

Many:  Go places we need did not expect to go;

One:  Give more than we expected to give.

Many:  May we pray through those moments of discomfort;

One: May we trust through those moments;

Many: May we love through those moments;

All:  And, ultimately, may we find the deep comfort that can only be found in God's holy gifting of hope.  Amen.
