I recently came across this prayer from the ecumenical Iona Community in Scotland. I like its approach.
You keep us waiting.
You the God of all time,
Want us to wait for the right time in which to discover Who we are, where we must go, Who will be with us, and what we must do.
So thank you… for the waiting time.
You keep us looking.
You the God of all space,
Want us to look in the right and wrong places for signs of hope,
For people who are hopeless,
For visions of a better world that will appear
Among the disappointments of the world we know:
So thank you… for the looking time.
