Your words today, O God our Father, are so comforting, so delightful!
Thus says the Lord God: but a very little while, and Lebanon shall be changed into an orchard, and the orchard be regarded as forest! On that day the deaf shall hear the words of a book; and out of gloom and darkness, the eyes of the blind shall see. The lowly will ever find joy in the Lord, and the poor rejoice in the Holy One of Israel.Isaiah 29:17-19
In your Son's coming, Jesus Christ, all our shame were wiped away including our sins; this Advent, help us to rise again from our falls and failures, Lord Jesus; remember us as we remember our sinfulness, as we acknowledge our blindness.
We want to see again, Lord Jesus, with heads up high, no longer ashamed of our sins and infidelities to you; wash and cleanse us, Jesus this Advent season as we reform our lives and our ways to reflect your coming, your presence, your love and your dignity in us. Amen.
