Praying with Walter Brueggemann
Amid this cacophony that pulls us
in many directions,
we have these old voices of your prophets;
these voices attest to
your fierce self,
your severe summons,
your generous promise,
your abiding presence.
Give us good ears,
perchance you have a word for us tonight;
Give us grace and courage to listen,
and to rejoice,
that we may be more fully your people.
