we have waited
for healing and peace.
We have prayed
and given thanks
for the good things
that still surround us.
But we are weary
and our reserves are running low.
And still, O God
no end is in sight.
O God, how long will this go on?
How long will we lurch from troughs to peaks,
things constantly changing,
bringing confusion, anger and renewed fear.
O God you are our constant
our source of comfort and of strength.
God you are our ever present help
in all kinds of storms and troubles.
Do not fail us now we need your aid, O God,
we can not get through this on our own.
Have you abandoned us?
