We Need HOPE, Now More Than Ever
December 1, 2019
First Sunday in Advent
Let us pray: As we begin this advent season of preparation, we listen intently for that voice crying out in the wilderness and seek nothing more than to prepare for your coming. In these moments of worship, help us to bring down the mountains in our lives that prevent us from traveling on our road, and to smooth out those rough places that seem to be impassable. We pray for those moments tha t we might listen, hear, and ultimately cling to that hope in the Lord that will renew an d strengthen us. We want to soar we want to run we want to live in you. Open our hearts to your Word to us that in you, we might receive that hope. In the name o f the one who is promised, Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.
Some of you will know this as true when I say it, but having two young adult college aged children has changed our lives. There’s a voice that is playing in the back of my mind and it is my father’s voice and it goes something like this it’s a little late to realize that now you should have known that the minute you decided to have children.”
