Advent, Day 2

DEach Advent we light the Advent candles representing hope, peace, joy and love.  Here is a short prayer which invites us to wait for Christ’s coming.

 Lord Jesus Christ, we await your coming,
We wait filled with hope,
Knowing your light will shine in the darkness.
 We wait anticipating your peace,
 Believing that one day it will fill our world.
 We wait embracing your love,
May we reach out to share it with our neighbors.
We wait with joy,
 Bubbling us in expectation of your birth.
 Lord we wait,
Come soon and fill us with your life.  
 ~ written by Christine Sine (2012), and posted on GodSpace.  

 This week as we light the candle for hope, I hope you’ll take a minute to offer your hopes to God.  During this time of year when we make lists and check them twice, I hope you’ll offer to God not those things you would like, but those deep longings of your heart.  Lift them up to God and await God’s transformation.  

Peace,
Laurie
