“Lord, open my lips, and my mouth shall declare your praise.”
“On that day … ”
The reading from Isaiah is another promise of a day of victory,
when the tables will be turned on injustice.
Today, let’s turn to our God, with all our needs.
Part of our Advent journey is about learning to hope
– learning to imagine what we can’t see.
Let’s go through our day today, desiring freedom with a growing confidence in our God who promises to save us.
Come and set us free, Lord, God of power and might.
Let your face shine on us and we shall be saved.
God of strength and protection,
I turn to You because I need help.
I long to be free enough
to trust that I can lean on You.
But I become afraid.
Help me to trust in You, Lord.
Your strength and power
are a gentle place of protection.
Be a safe refuge when I am being trampled.
I long for Your help, Your protecting care.
Help to deliver me from the cold
loneliness of these dark nights.
May the Lord bless us.protect us from all evil and bring us to everlasting life. Amen
