Advent Prayer Opportunities

Advent Prayer Opportunities

The word ‘Advent’ comes from Latin and means “coming;” its purpose is to look forward to the coming of Christ to Earth; it was a season that focused on waiting. So, “Advent means something new is coming. The dawn of a new and better era. This is really what the Christmas season is all about, isn’t it? It’s the celebration of the ADVENT of a new era. God broke into time and space and entered our world.”

Through prayer, we can enter into God’s world and ask Him to prepare our hearts the way He prepared all of history to receive the gift of His Son. Ask the Father to use this time during Advent to cut away the distractions and make your life a place of warmth and openness, and make sure there’s “room at the inn” of your heart this year.
