O Patient Redeemer, Come
2 Peter 3:9 The Sovereign is not slow in fulfilling the promise as some count slowness,
but is forbearing toward you, not wishing that any should perish . . .
O Patient Redeemer, Come~
We are slowly losing our capacity to endure.
We wait for a cure from disease,
we wait for a plan for stability,
we wait for a future of security.
We are floundering in hopelessness,
growing impatient, giving in to despair.
Strengthen us with a spirit of forbearance.
As you lovingly wait for us
to work for peace and sow seeds of justice,
help us to patiently wait
for that dominion we strive for
to take root and grow.
Grant us patience, peace and perseverance
as we seek to be healers in this world.
