Prayer of the Day
Second Sunday of Advent
December 7th, 2014
""John the Baptist appeared in the wilderness heralding a baptism of repentance for sin. The people came to him from everywhere and were baptized.""
Mark 1 : 4
Here the people showed how sorry they were for their sins and wanted forgiveness so John baptized them as a sign they were forgiven. I also need to be forgiven again and again. I too, need to ask God daily for forgiveness and his help to rise from my sins too especially during this time of Advent.
Lord, as I begin this season of Advent to be ready to receive Christ this Christmas, I ask your forgiveness, O Lord, for all the times I have sinned. Lift me up and give me the help I need to say sorry and begin again anew. Amen
