Equipping God's People to Create Missional Culture

Praying with Walter Brueggemann

Squircle Set of Favorites from Squared Circle

We all know about being entitled
and then growing careless

We all know about self-indulgence,
even amid work to be done.

We all know about being – for a moment –
beyond Torah requirement and
outside of your world of command

We know about seasons of life not given over to us
and grief at being failed selves

We also know that you circle back among us
in harshness and in mercy
in rigor and in generosity

Now our world has gone careless and
self-indulgent and
beyond Torah.

So circle back, we pray – one more time,
among us with your mercy,
our only source of comfort,
for we belong to you in your faithfulness.

From Prayers for a Privileged People
