'When Expectations Are Unmet' Liturgy Print and Christian Gift by Ruth Chou Simons

Liturgies are prayers written to give voice to things you may not be able to easily articulate on your own. This liturgy from Now and Not Yet by Ruth Chou Simons offers words to pray for your season of life for when expectations are unmet.

I have expectations, Lord, buried so deep inside me
that most friends and family will never fully know—
until my expectations erupt, boil over, and spread
to reveal my secret longings.
I am neither the master nor the ruler of my life,
so teach me to acknowledge what is true
and submit to
your rule and reign,
your wise ways,
your timing in all things,
your purpose in pain,
your allowance for disappointments,
your delay in deliverance.
Right now may not be what I want,
but tune my heart to sing your grace.
Even here, where I feel the dissonance
of being out of tune,
let me lean in and listen to the melody
of your faithfulness today,
so that even my expectations are transformed
into longings that reflect your heart for me.
Do what feels impossible for me
but is more than feasible by your hand, O Lord.
