Watching, waiting and preparing our hearts

Today marks the second week of Advent when we discover that merely living an upright life, while good, is not enough. We need to submit ourselves in total humility to the will of God. We light the second candle today–the candle of preparation. We ready ourselves for the coming of the Lord. 



Stir up our hearts, O Lord, to prepare the ways of Thine only-begotten Son, that through His coming we may be worthy to serve Thee with purified minds. Who livest and reignest, with God the Father, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, God, world without end. Amen.

This week, we think and pray for conversion of heart
We examine our consciences
Am I living in total submission to God?
Do I pray for His lead in my life?
Do we put our wants on the back burner for the needs of others?

We wait
We prepare
We are vigilant
We keep Christ before our eyes
