Father in heaven, we ask that this Advent you would seal deep within our souls the meaning of Your Son’s coming.
Jesus came not to entertain. He came not merely to make a great story.
He came to restore us rebels to our God. Advent is personal.
Draw us closer in these days to the heart of Christ, which is your own heart, and make his first advent, in all its realness and substance, more real in our lives.
In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
