A Liturgy for Seasons of Uncertainty

We are grateful to get to share another new, timely liturgy from Douglas McKelvey’s upcoming Every Moment Holy, Vol. II: “A Liturgy for Seasons of Uncertainty.” And not only is the text of the liturgy now available—Kristyn Getty has shared a special video reading of the liturgy as well.



In the midst of whatever follows, O Lord, let me meet your mercies anew, and anew, and anew. In the midst of my dismay, fix my eyes again and again upon your eternal promises.

How this ends—that is up to you. If the next news is favorable, I will praise you for the ongoing gift of life. If tomorrow’s tidings are worse, still will I proclaim your goodness, my heart anchored ever more firmly in the eternal joys you have set before me.

And when, whether days or decades from now, you finally bid me rise and follow you across the last valley, I will rejoice in your faithfulness even there. Especially there—

praying Thy will be done, and trusting by faith that it will be done. That it is being done. Even now. Even in this disquiet.

I am utterly yours, O Christ. In the midst of this uncertainty, I abandon myself again to you, the author and the object of all my truest hopes. Amen.
