An Advent Prayer – We bear the need of a savior on our hearts…

From today’s Advent devotional entry at the Trinity School for Ministry website

reflecting on this verse: “And people shall enter the caves of the rocks and the holes of the ground, from before the terror of the Lord, and from the splendor of his majesty, when he rises to terrify the earth” (Isa 2:19)

Lord we bear the need of a savior on our hearts this day. Help us to see this need not only in these days of Advent but also in the days to follow. Equip us to preach a message of liberation to the captives and hope for all who find themselves hiding in caves. Your Word is light and Your Gospel breaks into the deepest of all human sinfulness. Savior of the nations, come and dwell with us in promise and hope this Advent. Amen.
