From our December 15th Prayer Service …
Most gracious Father, during this Advent season, we have experienced the hope of salvation, the peace of a mighty yet gentle God, the joy of the promise of eternal life, and now the greatest gift of love.
We humbly come into Your presence, bowing before You, grateful and amazed. When we quiet ourselves in Your comforting arms, we can empty our hearts that so often feel heavy, hurt, and sad. We are then filled to overflowing by You and how much You care and love us by giving us this Savior. Our Savior, Christ Jesus, a baby born in a lowly stable yet a King.
Thank you, Abba Father. Thank you for seeing our brokenness, our shame, our anger, our wicked ways but also for still loving us in the midst of it all. The world needs a savior, the world needs love. You provide exactly what we all need.
Praise be to God. Amen.
