Food for Thought-Richard’s Morning Prayer for the 1st Thursday in Advent


As the distance narrows between night and dawn, we feel the gentle breeze and know you are prompting us to go forward. Today we continue our journey with you. Amid the crooked paths of our lives and the mountain like obstructions we’ve created which alter how others see God; may we straighten the roads and move the mountains as your messengers today. May our lives be living witnesses to the three dimensional reality of your Good News. Thank you for calling us out of our darkness and to be bearers of the Word. May we comfort those who mourn. May we offer forgiveness as we have been forgiven. May we offer strength to the weak and may we see your kingdom in the community we call home.

In Jesus’ Name,
