The Advent prayer for Monday, December 12, 2002, comes to us from: Hark the Herald Angels Sing: Daily Prayers for Advent by Stephenie Hovland
10 For we are what he has made us, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand to be our way of life.
Ephesians 2:10 NRSV
We have been created, by the one who created everything, to reflect the love and grace of our creator. God has a purpose for our lives that will bless others and transform the world. Each of us have been uniquely gifted to touch the lives of those within our sphere of influence. May we walk, each day, in humble reverence to the one who created us that we may lead others to discover their purpose.
Advent Prayer – Day 16
Great Creator, you made the heavens and the earth, the angels, and people. As much as we revere the creation, the workmanship of you angels, we recognize we are also created to do you will. Help us see the good works you have prepared, which are all around us, so that we can walk in your ways. Guide us as we turn away from selfish ambitions and seek to serve others and serve you. Amen.
