1 Corinthians 4:5 CEB
Don’t judge anything before the right time- wait until the Lord comes. He will bring things that are hidden in the dark to light, and he will make people’s motivations public. Then there will be recognition for each person from God.

Praying is no easy matter. It demands a relationship in which you allow someone other than yourself to enter into the very center of your person, to see there what you would rather leave in darkness, and to touch there what you would rather leave untouched.
– Henri Nouwen

Everything belongs, and no one needs to be scapegoated or excluded. Evil or Untruth cannot be directly fought or separated from as much as exposed to the Light.
– Richard Rohr

Timeless One, give us wisdom
to know when to wait and when to act
to know what to pick up and what to leave behind

Holy One, give us faith
to stand, trusting all will be revealed
to bow, knowing all will be revealed

The hidden will be brought to light
hidden actions of our hands
hidden motives of our hearts
hidden words, hidden thoughts

Lord, have mercy
Christ, have mercy
Lord, have mercy
on me
on us
Redeem and heal us all
