Advent Day 3

Loving God,
I sense that all is Your creation,
and everything, and all of us,
are being drawn back toward Your loving heart.

Help me to be a person of peace,
to speak about it in an uneasy world,
and to live it among the people,
You have put into my life every day.

Light in me a desire to prepare for Your coming,
to stand in the darkness, waiting, eager, and filled with joy.

Thank you for these Advent posts Denise!
My prayer today:
'Light of the world' - shine your light in me today. In a country clouded by darkness, let my light as small as it is shine out against corruption today. As we prepare to celebrate your coming into this world - may your Holy Spirit convict the hearts of those who know of you and refuse to live in that light. Let your Kingdom come. Amen.

Stay Blessed x
