Look for this prayer each week. Take time to pray it each day and know that your church family is saying this prayer.
Oh my goodness, God...the Advent season is upon us. How quickly it comes around each year. Every year, I tell myself that I will be awake to this season of preparation for the celebration of Jesus' birth. Sometimes I succeed and other times I fail by getting consumed in the secular activities of the holidays. You are all-important to me and the gift of your only Son is precious to me. I would be lost in hopelessness and darkness without Him. In this season, I will listen for the voices of angels announcing in my heart..."Awake, my child...Jesus is coming!"; and my soul will rejoice, for I know it is true. Amen.
