Wednesday, December 23 — Psalm 147:1–6
2 Kings 21:1–22:10; Acts 7:4–16
I lie down and sleep; I wake again, for the Lord sustains me. Psalm 3:5
Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it. Mark 10:15 NIV
Loving Savior, our preparation is drawing to a close and we are eager to receive you anew. Anticipation builds within us. Open our hearts, gracious Lord, so we may arrive at the manger with deep humility and a strong desire to serve you. Amen.
