This collection of prayers by noted Hebrew Bible scholar Walter Brueggemann can be used in both public worship and private devotions.

These prayers range from particular days in the church year to special moments in the lives of worshiping communities, to events playing out on the world stage.

The prayers show us how God accompanies us through all the moments and stages of our life, bringing us the joys of life even amid a broken and hurting world and especially offering a joyous calling in Christ to serve that world.

“This is the first I've heard of Walter Brueggemann, and what a way of discovering him.
Waiting in Gratitude is a collection of beautifully descriptive prayers that surpass the normal boring way of praying, which is a relief to see in full written form.
He really observes ordinary things in daily life and it shows in his detailed descriptions of different aspects of why and how he's praising God, and it's very insightful and beautiful to behold.
The prayers not only show the suffering for what it is, but the joy that awaits as we place our hope in God. We need more of this kind of prayer and less of the same old, same old.” Amazon reader review 23 Jan 2024
