Advent is a time for greater faith in God, greater hope in his promises, greater acceptance of his loving forgiveness

Alternate Gathering Prayer

Lord filled with power and merciful love, so much do we wish to be in the company of your Son. We are going out to meet him in haste. Do not let any present tasks of life or sinfulness get in our way but stir up in us an understanding heart that when we encounter him we shall be ready to walk with him forever for he is King forever in your heavenly presence.

Our response today to the word of God — Psalm 85 (in part)

Lord, let us see your kindness, and grant us your salvation.

I will hear what God proclaims;
the LORD—for he proclaims peace to his people.
Near indeed is his salvation to those who fear him,
glory dwelling in our land.

Kindness and truth shall meet;
justice and peace shall kiss.
Truth shall spring out of the earth,
and justice shall look down from heaven.

The LORD himself will give his benefits;
our land shall yield its increase.
Justice shall walk before him,
and prepare the way of his steps.

[The Lord’s “kindness” = his merciful and faithful covenant love and forgiveness]

Come, let us worship the Lord together

Alternate Gathering Prayer

Your faithful people, Lord almighty God, await the coming revelation of your Son with great expectation. May they do so by your timely grace and Godlike living in association with your Son and thereby come to possess your kingship in heaven.

 

Our response today to the word of God — Psalm 80 (in part)

 

O shepherd of Israel, hearken,
from your throne upon the cherubim, shine forth.
Rouse your power,
and come to save us.

Once again, O LORD of hosts,
look down from heaven, and see;
take care of this vine,
and protect what your right hand has planted
the son of man whom you yourself made strong.

May your help be with the man of your right hand,
with the son of man whom you yourself made strong.
Then we will no more withdraw from you;
give us new life, and we will call upon your name.

 

[The man at your right hand = the Davidic King, the Messiah.]
