Here begins a daily Advent Evening Prayer for this season of preparation and anticipation of the the Nativity of the Lord at Christmas. Each day's Advent Evening Prayer will include a song, a short reading and a few words of comment. An Advent Evening Prayer will be posted each day at 4:00 p.m. for your reflection from dusk until your head hits the pillow.
Yet, O LORD, you are our father;
we are the clay and you the potter:
we are all the work of your hands.
Like clay in your moist hands, O God,
shape me, form me, make of me
the person you desire me to be.
Turn me on the wheel of my life's
sorrows and joys
and smooth my rough places.
Touch me and let your warm fingerprints
mark me as your own.
Let me to be clay in your hands
for you know better than I
the person you call me to be.
