ADVENT REFLECTION DAY 22

December 21st

 

        “Let it be done to me according to your word”

         Luke 1:26-38Day 22 Annunciation

Mary, in her fiat, her powerful yes to the angel, is a beautiful example of receptivity to God. In her yes she became the model disciple and perfect example of prayer. When we come to God in prayer the best attitude to take is a Marian attitude “Let it be done to me according to your Word”  The Holy Spirit will overshadow us and what will be born of us will be of God.

So let us go into silence sense the delicate movements of the Spirit within us and be receptive as surely as Mary was receptive.

Come holy spirit empower me to say a powerful yes
to the leading of your spirit in my own life

Prayer:

    Lord God, you choose the very least
    And raise us up to greatness
    For nothing is impossible with God
    You take the weak, the poor and blind
    And raise us out of darkness
    For nothing is impossible with God

          Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good.
          His love endures forever.
          Give thanks to the God of gods.
          His love endures forever.
          Give thanks to the Lord of lords:
          His love endures forever.


              Teach us obedience, Lord
              In every part of our lives
              Ears to hear your word
              Hands to do your work
              Feet to walk your path
              A heart for all your people
              A mouth to shout your praise


                  A childlike faith
                  Humility
                  Confidence
                  That says
                  To the possible
                  And the impossible
                  I am the Lord's servant
                  May it be to me as you have said.
                  Amen
                  Prayer adapted from www.faithandworship.com
