Merciful God

December 16, 2018

Never goes out of style —

Merciful God, 

you sent your messengers the prophets 

to preach repentance

and prepare the way for our salvation.

Give us grace to heed their warnings

and forsake our sins,

that we may greet with joy

the coming of Jesus Christ, our Redeemer;

who lives and reigns

with you and the Holy Spirit,

one God, now and for ever.

Amen.

— This Advent prayer from our official Hymnal (page 201) is succinct and encompassing.

For example, I’m blown away by how it addresses God as Merciful.

Anybody else needing some of God’s mercy today?

Join me in this prayer.

Let’s watch for our Merciful God at work today.
