"Be strong and let your heart take courage, all you who wait for the Lord." Psalm 31:24
"For God alone my soul in silence waits; truly, my hope is in God." Psalm 62:6
A Prayer for Christmas Eve:
Oh, God, we weep in our chains. So many things hold us captived in our devastations, the ruins of our cities. Fill our hearts with courage. Remind us of the promise of redemption. Come to ransom us from all the things which hold us in fear. Set us free.
