Thursday of the first week of Advent

Daily Prayer

Lord of all, you are a God of plenty, a Lord who provides
for us in our need.
As I begin these early days of Advent
help me to believe that you know what I need.
Give me the courage to listen to your voice
and the freedom
to open my heart to the graces you are
offering me to place my trust in you.
May the Lord bless us,
protect us from all evil
and bring us to everlasting life.
Amen.

Reflection

May we be like the house built upon rock. We are guided to take refuge in the Lord. Can we trust and be comforted knowing He protects those who do His will?
