This collection of 6 poetic prayers explores the question, what can’t wait? Each poem reflects on how God can’t wait to create hope, peace, joy, and love. Honest and intimate, these poems offer Advent meditations that might become prayers of your own. We hope you might adapt them for worship liturgy, use them to open and close programming events, or print them as they are for members in your community to read and return to throughout the season of Advent.

Prayers written by Sarah Are.

Excerpt:

Hope looks the 24-hour news cycle in the face,
Hope looks our broken relationships in the face,
Hope looks our low self-esteem in the face,
And declares at low tide that the water will return.
Hope is exhaling, trusting that your body will inhale again.
Hope is watching the sunset and setting an alarm.
Hope is planting seeds in the winter, assuming summer will come.
—Sarah Are, from “God’s Promised Day Can’t Wait (Hope Can’t Wait)”
