Thank you very much, dear Jesus for the gift of Advent, for your promise to come again after you have come and still come; let me come rejoicing to your house, O Lord!
I rejoiced because they said to me, “We will go up to the house of the Lord.” And now have set foot within your gates, O Jerusalem. Because of my relatives and friends I will say, “Peace be within you!” Because of the house of the Lord, our God, I will pray for your good.Psalm 122: 1-2, 8-9
As I look back to 2022 about to end, the more I believe in your Second Coming, Lord Jesus; with grateful heart, I praise and thank you, Lord, in letting us survive this year, in letting us survive this pandemic as you washed us all clean from our sins that was long seen by Isaiah and fulfilled in your coming.
Let me come to you, Lord, like that centurion, filled with faith and trust in his belief in you, in your powerful coming even in words. Amen.
