A Prayer in Advent: for Those in a Personal Crisis

December 23, 2021

This Advent, join me in praying for The Church and for the people who are the churches. These prayers come from the Book of Common Prayer: Daily Prayer, published by our Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) sisters and brothers. It’s been on my shelf, recently re-discovered, and offers a wealth of riches. For example —

Just for today,

what does it matter, O Lord, if the future is dark?

To pray now for tomorrow I am not able.

Keep my heart only for today,

grant me your light,

just for today. Amen.

— Teresa of Lisieux, 1873-1897
