Scripture Reading: Isaiah 40:28-31

28 Do you not know?
Have you not heard?
The Lord is the everlasting God,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary,
and his understanding no one can fathom.
29 He gives strength to the weary
and increases the power of the weak.
30 Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
31 but those who hope in the Lord
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.

Praise and Worship Contd.

Pray and prepare for the Advent Season: First Sunday of Advent, November 27, 2022, symbolizing Hope. Advent is a time to restructure the proverbial treadmill and reflect on what Christmas really means in the life of believers.

Lord, help us to remember that you came to redeem, and reconcile us to you as exemplified by your birth, life, death by crucifixion, resurrection, and your promise to return at a time of your choosing. Help us to be rooted and live lives personified with your love, transformation, empowered by the fruits of your Holy Spirit, and shine your light in our everyday interactions.
