An Advent PrayerWe were blessed to have Bishop Erik Gronberg preach at St. Luke's last Sunday! This week, I am posting an Advent prayer I wrote during my morning devotions.

 Come to me quickly, Lord Christ

brush by with heavenly wings

Raise me high

to see a larger vision of you

Scrape away the residue of days past

of failings and resentments

of words left unsaid and work unfinished

Sweep me into a new day, a new moment

attentive to you

Stir up, shake up, and raise up my soul

center me in your heart

Give me holy perception

watching your movement

Hold me aloft in your grace

that I may surrender to love

and join you in shining light

Come to me quickly, Lord Christ.
