From the pastor’s heart

” My soul magnifies the Lord, and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior, for he has looked with favor on the lowliness of his servant.”

The Gospel according to Luke

Holy God,

We wait for you, Oh Lord,

We wait for you to come to us, for you are our everlasting God. You inspire us to be better than we are and you strengthen us when we are weary and teary and faint of heart. You grant us the power to persevere, even when everything around us seems strange and uncertain, overwhelming, and out of whack. Dear Lord, we look towards the days ahead with anticipation, and we ask that you fill us with a certain joy as we wait upon a great and wonderful gift. We pray that the love shown in your act of giving moves us to love in return. Enable us to proclaim your mighty presence in the world and grant us the courage and strength to proclaim your Divine truth whenever and wherever we can.

Amen
