Needful For Newness
April 18, 2012 § Leave a comment
Here is part of a Walter Brueggemann prayer based on Psalm 4:
O God, We dare pray that you will do for us and among us and through us what is needful for newness. Give us the power to be receptive, to take the newness you give, to move from womb warmth to real life. We make this prayer not only for ourselves, but for our school at the brink of birth, for the church at the edge of life, for our city waiting for newness, for your whole creation, with which we yearn in eager longing. There is a time to be born, and it is now. We sense the pangs and groans of your newness. Come here now in the name of Jesus. Amen.
