All-loving God,
awaken in us the patience to be incomplete,
to be in the process of becoming closer to you and to your people.
Help us to know that slow is real,
that gradual is divine
and keep gently asking for our participation in the work of salvation.
Give us ways to respond;
give us the energy to be actively engaged
in the lives around us
and the world you have given us. Amen.
