Readings and Prayers – 1 December 2013


You heavens above rain down righteousness; let the clouds shower it down. Let the earth open wide, let salvation spring up. Isaiah 45:8

Advent Collect:

People of God: awake!
The day is coming soon when you shall see God face to face.
Remember the ways and the works of God.

You are God’s children.
Lord make us one as we walk with Christ today and for ever.
