Prayer for December 20: Please pray with me. God of Good News, we wait. Too often we wait for Good News to happen. We wait for Good News “out there.” As if Good News is something that we play no role in. But we could be waiting for a very long time. And that’s not how you work. You infuse Good News into our lives and call us out to be Good News to all around us. You give us hope so that we can be hope-filled. You give us forgiveness, so that we can forgive. You give us peace, so that we can live peace-filled lives. You give us mercy, so we can be merciful. You give us love, so that we can love – both neighbors and enemies. Send us out to be Good News to a world that is desperate for Good News. Amen.
