God of comfort, wrap me securely in your nurturing arms. Let me be your voice, your heart, your loving touch to someone who needs a word of grace, a voice of hope, a loving hug during these sometimes difficult Advent days. Amen.
God waits to comfort me.
I took this photo a couple of years ago from my family's cabin in Colorado. I watched the full moon rise over the side of the canyon.
Who around you is in need of comfort? Where do you find comfort?
John Indermark is one of The Upper Room's most prolific authors. In this Advent book, he looks at the Christmas story as a pageant, reminding us of holidays past and present. He provides a dynamic view of how Advent gradually moves the drama forward to the climax of Christmas. I'm sorry to say that this book is no longer in print, but you can find copies from Amazon.
I could not have found The Upper Room Moments of Prayer (on Facebook Live) sooner. For it is during these moments of centering spiritual practices, meditating on the words of scripture, praying with and for the world, that I find moments of transcendence, hear whispers of peace and hope, see glimpses of truth and justice, behold visions of love and beauty amid all the stark realities that are around me.”
