We had hoped you were the one

We had hoped you were the one January 3, 2014

Woke up and thought of this prayer I wrote for our Good Friday Service at the Hollywood  Adventist Church in 2009.

God,

We have such fond memories of you.

The way you used to comfort us when we were sad.

The way you gave us such confidence in the face of uncertainty.

We miss you!

We had hoped that you were the one

to fulfill our dreams and give us the desires of our hearts.

We are deeply disappointed and broken this morning by the realization that

our hopes were misplaced.

We have dreamed for the wrong things.

We have prayed the wrong prayers.

Where shall we go from here?

We are lonely and in pieces.

Amen.
