Friend of this blog, David McCarthy (aka Gadget Vicar), vicar of St. Silas church in Glasgow, Scotland has posted a link to an Advent prayer blog created by women of his church. There is a brief Scripture and prayer for each day. It is wonderful.
Here’s Advent Day One’s entry.
Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart. (Psalm 37:4)
Father help me in dark days to see you light and to take pleasure in the day to day, in the moment, and give you praise for my very breath. Make the desires of my heart your desires, whatever is true, pure, lovely, admirable, right, excellent and most worthy of praise, may my desires be. Strip away everything else until I am all those things without even thinking or trying, until they are my very being, in harmony with you.
