Barth:

‘Lord, do not let us – not one of us – remain dull and indifferent to your gift and revelation…Awaken us to the small joy and thankfulness that we are capable of, the timid faith that we bring, the incomplete obedience that we cannot refuse – to the hope in the greatness, wholeness, and completeness that you have prepared for us in the death of our Lord, Jesus Christ, and that you have promised us in his resurrection from the dead. Amen’
[Fifty Prayers, pp.29-30]
