A Prayer for Advent

Father in this season of Advent we prepare our hearts for your coming.
You are the vine, we are the branches.
Come and tend us, prune us, clean us.

Discard in us everything that does not bear fruit,
Nourish in us everything that bears much fruit.

As we celebrate your coming as a vulnerable baby
Our hearts await your glorious return as the eternal King.
Nurture in us expectant hearts, O Lord.
Cultivate in us a deep longing for more of you.
Until that Day when you burst through the heavens,
And flood our horizons with your glorious splendour.

For yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory,
throughout all ages and generations.

Amen.

An Ancient Celtic Blessing

“May the Road Rise Up To Meet You” is a beautiful old Celtic blessing. Blessings are a gift and ancient ones like these help us to become open channels for the fragrance of Christ to surround those we give out to. I love the references to creation – the sun, the wind, the rain – Read More
