We join with Mary and Elizabeth, Ruth and Naomi, and all the women through the generations who have been faithful to you and your call. They are our Water Carriers who birth your new way for their communities. We praise you for the Water Carriers in our community who hold fast to your call, bringing peace, love, joy, and hope into our midst.

We enter your sacred prayer space, singing songs of love and joy. We are joyful because of how you love us. How intricate, Loving Creator, are the plans you have for us! Forty-two documented, detailed generations in Old Testament times tell stories of how you have guided our ancestors on the Ancient Path that is your Holy Way. You remind us, now, that these, and so many other stories yet to discover, also tell of our personal journeys.

We enter your sacred prayer space to spend time with you. We have been journeying daily together throughout the time of Advent, on your Holy Way, towards your Holy Mountain. Although we know and have experienced so much, we cannot help but wonder about the things you keep hidden from us. We don’t know what we don’t know, but we are afraid to ask. You tell us to ask anything of you, but we are afraid. Even still, you share your vision and promises with us, reassuring us as we journey.

Your ways are mysterious, O LORD. By your invitation, we journey on your Holy Way, this ancient path upon which our ancestors and great mystics also journeyed. In faith, we step with assurance that you will be with us and our descendants forever, and that we will join with those in the Heavenly Realm in reverent worship for all eternity.
