Sixth Sunday in Ordinary Time, February 15, 2009

God, Our Father, Give Us!
Give us, ever patient God, that Spirit
which can endure delay,
and bear suffering,
and never give in.

To endure delay,
yet live through each moment with confidence,
and not lose heart,
nor allow the vision of the better times to fade.

To bear suffering,
yet not be broken by it,
and not be overcome by bitterness,
nor find faith fall short.

And never give in,
yet not to bear a grudge
and not to live, grim faced, stiff lipped,
nor show pride in enduring.

But rather, by your Spirit, point us to Jesus our Lord who, through temptations, injustice, hardship and opposition patiently bore your perfect will with loving kindness and with constant hope.
