A Prayer for the Cautiously Hopeful

We’ve waited so long for results, answers, closure, clarity, or resolution and today it seems like we might finally get it.

The news seems good.

The outlook seems positive.

But we are afraid.

We hesitate to throw ourselves into the celebration because we’ve been down this road before.

We fear false positives, failure, and disappointment again.

Remind us that ultimately, You are the clarity we long for, the answer we need, and the confidence we seek.

No matter how things turn out, You are our surest resolution.

As we stand on tip-toe and allow our eyes to gaze into the future of what might be, give us the assurance that you are with us in what is right now.

You stand between us and every possible future.
