Journeying toward Advent Two

Monday 4 December – Saturday 9 December

 

If you can light a candle then do so to remind you that God is present.

Be still.

Be quiet.

Listen.

Receive.

 

God of time and space,

at this point I focus on your presence here and now.

May this pause be a moment

to ponder your nearness

and your guidance.

Amen.

 

A voice cries out: “In the wilderness prepare the way of the Lord, make straight in the desert a highway for our God. Every valley shall be lifted up, and every mountain and hill be made low; the uneven ground shall become level, and the rough places a plain.” Isaiah 40.vv 3,4

 

Consider today’s journey.

Ponder the twists and turns.

Which hills have still to be climbed?

Which valleys still lie ahead?

 

Come in your holy might, we pray,

Redeem us for eternal day;

Defend us while we dwell below,

From all assaults of our dread foe.

8th century Advent hymn.

 

 

We give to you this time, O God.

We give to you our life, O God.

We give to you our hopes, our dreams, our longing, our yearning,

for you give to us the desire to do the things you would have us do

and the people you would have us love. Amen.
