The Season of Advent
+ In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
“Look, I am sending my messenger ahead of you, and he will prepare your way. He is a voice shouting in the wilderness, ‘Prepare the way for the Lord’s coming! Clear the road for him!’” (Mark 1:2-3 NLT)
Morning Reading: Zechariah 9:9-11 NLT
Rejoice, O people of Zion! Shout in triumph, O people of Jerusalem! Look, your king is coming to you. He is righteous and victorious, yet he is humble, riding on a donkey — riding on a donkey’s colt.
I will remove the battle chariots from Israel and the warhorses from Jerusalem. I will destroy all the weapons used in battle, and your king will bring peace to the nations. His realm will stretch from sea to sea and from the Euphrates River to the ends of the earth.
Because of the covenant I made with you, sealed with blood, I will free your prisoners from death in a waterless dungeon.
King Jesus: Come and rescue me.
+ You alone are the righteous One – forgive me for trusting in my own goodness.
+ You alone are victorious – forgive me for trusting in my own abilities.
+ You come with power – forgive me for trusting in my own strength.
+ You come in humility – forgive my brashness.
+ You come in peace – forgive my testiness.
King Jesus: Save me from myself great God and Savior. Show me how to live joyfully, wisely and obediently so that I may honor You in all things. I look forward with hope to that wonderful day when Your glory will be revealed. Even so, come quickly Lord!
“Shouts Of Joy , Sing For Joy , Roni Roni Bat Zion (Rejoice Rejoice Daugther Of Zion) “
Christ, as a light illumine and guide me. Christ, as a shield overshadow me. Christ under me; Christ over me; Christ beside me on my left and my right. This day be within and without me, lowly and meek, yet all-powerful. Be in the heart of each to whom I speak; in the mouth of each who speaks unto me. This day be within and without me, lowly and meek, yet all-powerful. Christ as a light; Christ as a shield; Christ beside me on my left and my right.
He who is the faithful witness to all these things says, “Yes, I am coming soon!” Amen! Come, Lord Jesus! May the grace of the Lord Jesus be with God’s holy people. (Revelation 22:20-21 NLT)
+ In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen
