Joel Elí Padrón, México offers this prayer and Katie Fiegenbaum has written the translation. It is shared from Red Crearte.

Come, Lord, we wait for you, we need youimgres-1

Come, because your world, our world weeps,
has doubts, suffers from indifference.
Come, because the power that sells death wants to rule.

Come, Lord, we wait for you, we need you

Come into our lives and bestow calm,
give us answers, light, feeling.
Affirm our faith, strengthen our hope.
Come into our lives so that we can give life.

Come, Lord, we wait for you, we need you

Come into our community to affirm the promise of being one,
one sole body that accompanies, comforts, shares, and serves.

Come, Lord, we wait for you, we need you.

Ven, Señor, te esperamos, te necesitamos

Ven, porque tu mundo, nuestro mundo llora,
tiene dudas, sufre la indiferencia.
Ven, porque el poder que vende muerte quiere reinar.

Ven, Señor, te esperamos, te necesitamos

Ven a nuestra vida y pon calma,
danos respuestas, luz, sentido.
Afirma nuestra fe, fortalece nuestra esperanza.
Ven a nuestra vida para que podamos dar vida.

Ven, Señor, te esperamos te necesitamos

Ven a nuestra comunidad para afirmar el compromiso de ser uno,
un solo cuerpo que acompaña, consuela, comparte, que sirve.

Ven, Señor, te esperamos te necesitamos
