This year we hope you’ll join us on an advent prayer journey. Like the wise men of scripture who followed the star in search of the Christ-child, we’ll seek to personally encounter the King. The centuries-old practice of Advent invites us to embrace the waiting as we align our hearts to the true north of Christ’s coming.
In these pages you’ll find a thought and a scripture for each day. We trust that the Lord will meet us in transformative ways as we spend a few minutes each day reflecting and praying through these themes. We know Christmas is a special time for children, so at the end of each week we’ve added a fun advent activity to do with the kids in your life.
This year as we wait in expectation for the arrival of Christ, let our souls join the refrain of God’s people throughout the centuries proclaiming, “Come, Lord Jesus. Come.”
Christ could have come to earth as a conquering warrior or an emperor with riches and fame. Yet He chose the path of a peasant, helpless and humble. In our culture, too often we find ourselves thirsting for prestige and drowning in comparison. Ask the Father to show you how you can emulate Christ’s humility this Christmas.
“And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger.”
