Daily Prayer in Advent
In the darkness of the early morning each day we pray about all that we are seeing and hearing – in our dreams, in the gospel, in the daily news.
We pray for those who do not feel they belong – who do not feel comfortable in their own skins, who are estranged from others, and who do not have a sense of the presence of God.
We pray for peace – in our own hearts, and in the hearts of all who live with fear and for those who exercise power.
We pray for all – whose needs we know and for those whose needs we do not know.
We pray because Sophia, Wisdom, is with us – and we want to be awake enough to notice how that makes a difference in our world.
What do you see this Advent?
