December 9 Advent Prayer
The Spirit makes known to us where He is moving
In the Advent story of waiting.
Are we looking for the signs of his appearance?
Where do we see hope rising in another person?
Where do we thirst and hunger for redemption?
Even in our own souls
we must look and find the places where we need
Christ to come.
And when we let him come and change us from the inside
then others will see and know,
consider and understand that the Lord has done these things for us.
Look for faith and hope in another today
and bless the space within to grow.
We need not compare our faith with others but
let us see and consider what God is stirring.
“Lord may we make room for your grace to grow within us
that the Holy Spirit may leap for joy when we recognize faith in another person.
May we be as Elizabeth who blesses Mary with the words of affirmation.
“Surely God will fulfill his promise to you as faith to believe grows inside.”
So whatever you are facing today bless the faith within you.
May the Lord turn your wilderness into a thriving forest
and your desert into fresh life- giving springs of water.
Find the star that points the way of the promised one.
Who brings to us all
peace and hope this advent season.
