Prayers for Everyday

LAST MINUTE

Leave a comment

Your birthday celebration
is almost here, Lord.
The dusting is done.
Decorations are in place.
There is last minute scurrying
to find presents,
purchased early and hidden,
that have yet to be wrapped.
Maybe I will stop at the store
for one last thing.
I know we need eggs
for the pancake supper
Christmas Eve.
We look forward to the slowing of time
as we wait for the renewal
of your coming into our lives.

Mark: 1:2-3:
As it is written in the prophet Isaiah, “See, I am sending my messenger ahead of you, who will prepare your way; the voice of one crying out in the wilderness: ‘Prepare the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.’”

Hymn: People, Look East
