Father, just as You sent John the Baptist to prepare the way for Jesus,
help us to clear a path in our hearts, too.
Show us the distractions in our life’s that block us from
all-out worship of You this Advent.
Lord, we await Your coming!
As we celebrate the first Advent – the first coming
We look toward the day when we will see You face to face.
We imagine what it will be like.
Give us a heart, Lord, that looks for Your coming on a daily basis.
Help us to live our life’s where we are constantly seeking Your presence.
Show us today how we need to be refined, purified, forgiven.
Give us the strength to ask for forgiveness and to then change our ways.
Amen

 

“I will lead the blind by a way they do not know, In paths they do not know I will guide them.
I will make darkness into light before them And rugged places into plains.
These are the things I will do, And I will not leave them undone.”
Isaiah 42:16
