Advent Word for Day 14 – GATHER

 Father, all-powerful and ever-living God,

 

we do well always and everywhere to give you thanks

through Jesus Christ, our Lord.

When he humbled himself to come among us as a man,

he fulfilled the plan you formed long ago

and opened for us the way to salvation.

Now we watch for the day,

hoping that the salvation promised us will be ours

when Christ our Lord will come again in his glory.

And so, with all the choirs of angels in heaven

we proclaim your glory and join in their unending hymn of praise:

Glory to God in the highest and peace on all the earth!  Amen.

 

 

 

 

In this Advent season of waiting on the Lord,

we trust in the Lord’s goodness.

We rely on his mercy.

We find shelter in his steadfast love.

In this Advent season of waiting on the Lord,

we walk in the Lord’s way.

We follow his example of love.

We keep our covenant promises.

In this Advent season of waiting,

Lord, forget our sins.

Remember your love.

Remember each one of us.

Remember your people everywhere.

In this Advent season of waiting,

Lord, we wait for your salvation.

We wait for your leading.

We wait for your coming. —based on Psalm 25:1-10
