From Chalice Worship (1997), of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ):

You wait for us until we are open to you.

We wait for your word to make us receptive.

Attune us to your voice, to your silence;

speak and bring your Son to us–Jesus, the word of your peace.

Your word is near, O Lord our God, your grace is near.

Come to us, then, with mildness and power.

Do not let us fail to hear you,

but make us receptive and open to Jesus Christ your Son,

who will come to look for us and save us

today and every day, forever and ever.

You, God, arouse faith in our hearts, whoever we are.

You know and accept all your people,

whatever their their thoughts are of you.

Speak to the world, then, your word,

come with your heaven among us,

give to the good and to the bad your Son,

forever and ever.  Amen.
