Anna: Ready to recognize

Luke 2:36-38


Question for Reflection:
Where are you looking for God’s handiwork today? What are you seeing?

Prayer for the day:
God, our worship may not be as persistent as Anna’s, but today is one of the days that we set aside for prayer and praise. Through our worship give us a clearness to see and know your presence. Compel us toward the expectant joy of the Messiah’s coming, and ready us to share this joy with the world. Come, child of Nazareth. Amen.
