God our deliverer,
    whose approaching birth
    still shakes the foundations of our world,
may we so wait for your coming
    with eagerness and hope
    that we embrace without terror
    the labor pangs of the new age,
through Jesus Christ. Amen.

Janet Morley, English author and speaker
2000 Years of Prayer


Isaiah 43:18-19

Remember not the former things,
    nor consider the things of old.
Behold, I am doing a new thing;
    now it springs forth, do you not perceive it?
I will make a way in the wilderness
    and rivers in the desert.

One thought on “labor pangs of the new age

  1. Beautifully put. There is much in today’s world that can stir our hearts, but as I was reminded last Sunday, the very name, “Wonderful Counselor”, is not in the vain of a therapist, but means that our God is a planner, who is executing his divine plan through the ages. All that is taking place is within the sphere of his control and part of the outworking of his perfect blueprint.
