Prayer for today

I am most grateful to John Birch for his inspiring poems and reflections on Advent.
The Advent story
of hope and mystery,
a kingdom
of this world and the next,
and a king
appearing when we least expect.
Heaven touching earth,
the footsteps of the divine
walking dusty roads
as once they did in Eden,
and a people,
searching for a Saviour,
and walking past
the stable.
Open eyes and hearts,
that this might be
an Advent of hope to the world.

May God grant us the ability to see beyond the dust of this life and gaze into the glory of the next.

Living in Grace
