Monday 21 November
Advent you may know is a season of preparing; indeed the special prayer for Advent Sunday at its heart simply asks for ‘grace’ from God to be ready.
Ready – by laying time aside to talk with Jesus, reading his Good News and establishing the rule hope for the day. Look at the news and pray God into that situation – pray for grace to inhabit and tend. Ask Jesus why! Seek a response of hope, if not directly in yourself then through other.
Grace to prepare in hope.
Help us today and every day to worship you, to hear your word, and to place you in the centre, help us to share your hope with others. We ask it in the name of the one who was born in Bethlehem. Amen.
