Weekly Prayer December 7

by Asbury Lafayette on December 07, 2020

O Eternal God,
in this Advent season, I remember Jesus.
I remember his coming
as the Child of Bethlehem,
greatest gift of Grace,
his miraculous birth blessing all births.
In this Advent season, I remember Jesus,
and I am not quite so fearful,
not quite as defensive or protective
of my possessions and position.
In this Advent season, I remember Jesus,
and I am so deeply grateful for
his gracious coming that I am moved to ask:
Is there someone for whom
a simple gesture of love would mean
more than any purchased gift?
Is there some corner of my life that
I might give to someone
or to you?
O Eternal God,
in this Advent season, I remember Jesus.
Come, Lord Jesus,
turn my remembering
into loving action.
Amen

(Kenneth Phifer – modified)
