Prayers and Reflections for use at home


O come, thou dayspring, come and cheer,
our spirits by thine advent here;
disperse the gloomy clouds of night,
and death's dark shadows put to flight.

Rejoice, rejoice!
Emmanuel shall come to thee,
O Israel.

from the Great O Antiphons (12th - 13th century)
trans. John Mason Neale (1818-1866)

Our journey through Advent continues.  This week, Advent 2, we are thinking about the prophets who spoke truth to power and invited God's people to listen to the hope-filled and challenging messages that he has for them.  Advent encourages us to be more attentive in our listening out for God's words for us.  God is always more ready to listen to us and more aware of how we are feeling, than we are to hear his wise and loving responses to us.  Let's make the time Advent to listen... to listen to our hearts and to God's heartfelt replies to us.

May God meet you in your prayerful listening.

Every blessing,

Revd Katrina (Vicar)
