Monday – November 26
O Rewarder of the Patient, Come
Psalm 25:3 Let none that wait for you be put to shame . . .
O Rewarder of the Patient, Come~
We begin this Advent season
longing to know your presence.
We yearn for hope where there is despair,
peace where there is rancor,
joy where there is sadness,
love where there is division.
Grant us a patient, yet active,
spirit of hopefulness
as we journey through these weeks.
Fill us with the desire to:
devote ourselves to quiet prayer,
commit ourselves to intentional preparation,
and offer ourselves to loving service.
May we know your immanent presence
more deeply each day
as we patiently await your coming.
