Advent Prayers

advent wreath prayers

 

I wanted to share these Advent prayers.  I love celebrating the Judeo-Christian aspects of the faith, as a matter of fact we had a Hanukkah party at my coop and we were given a box with a small Menorah, and candles, booklet on how to light them the prayers, and so I am celebrating both aspect of my biblical faith the Judeo and Christian by having my Anglican Rosary I say every night before midnight, and will help mum set up for Christmas, the decorations at home.  Enjoy these beautiful prayers and a Blessed Advent.

Amen 

Prayer, An Act of Love, Yes.

Prayer Act of Love

This caught my eye just now.  Prayer is a big part of scripture and most spiritual tradition have some form of prayer, mantras, something to that effect.  Why?  I I suppose prayer says a few things, especially when you pray for those that have done you harm, pray for justice, not revenge, justice, also for their transformation.  It shows a certain level of spiritual maturity, as well as general maturity.  It also shows God that we are not being self centered, that we acknowledge him, others, particularly if we are not just praying about “give me this Lord, make this happen for me” Me, Me, Me.  If we pray enhance the gifts His wishes to enhance in us and use them as He wishes to use them, as they can best serve His will, that he and you both are overjoyed, in accordance with His boundaries, then I think we show great wisdom.   Praying this kind of prayer I think and for others in this same way and for their well being, their transformation to spiritual wisdom is a great thing.

This year my health really knocked me out and I did not get an advent wreath and we only put up the nativity scene, not even the tree, kept it simple as myself and my 93 year old mum have had a rough time health wise. However, if I had gotten the wreath it would have been great to have these prayers to reflect on.  You can vary them, modify them to your own heartfelt words, but they are a nice model to work with.
