Christ Unexpected – Prayer of the Month

IPV Nicaragua 157

Christ Unexpected

Lord, we expected you to be grand but you have come as a helpless infant;
We expected you at another time, but you have come in the silence of the night.
We expected you to be dazzling, a king, but you have come as a fragile man, like us.
We thought you would be different,but you are humble.
Hardly anyone recognises you just seeing you is not enough.
We have to believe that you are God,like this, so human.
We had our own idea of you and you have defied all our expectations.
Give us faith to believe in you and recognise you as you are and as you have come to us.

This prayer was sent by Miguel Alonzo Macías, who works with CAFOD´s partner COMAL, the Community Trading Network in Honduras.
