Waiting on the Lord

Prayer for the Day

Coming Christ, we are preparing. But we must confess that we are not preparing for your advent, but for our own celebrations. Lists have been made, houses have been decorated, and menus prepared- yet we do not remember how to prepare our selves, our homes, or our congregations for your coming. Open our eyes and hearts, and enliven our hands and feet that we might join in the true preparations of the season. Amen.


How many lists do you have of things that need done before Christmas or the end of the year? What on those lists is part of preparing the way for the return of Jesus?

-Joshua Brockway; Director, Spiritual Life and Discipleship
