Friday, December 8 — Psalm 140:1–5
Amos 8,9; Revelation 10
Do not remember the former things, or consider the things of old. I am about to do a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? Isaiah 43:18-19
The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed that someone took and sowed in his field. Matthew 13:31
Like a gardener, O God, you plant seeds of hope in our world even when we do not perceive your work among us. As we prepare ourselves during this season of hope, give us a renewed sense of gratitude for your kingdom which is always unfolding. Amen.
