Practising Prayer in Advent
Advent is one of the church’s “seasons of preparation” – time to get ready for the great celebrations of Christmas and Epiphany; when Jesus is born and when Jesus is recognised.
For these few weeks, we are going to practice a prayer of waiting. Do join us if you can.
Find a place and time when you can sit and be still for 15 minutes at least. Settle yourself into a comfortable and alert position. Take 10 deep breaths.
Consider where you see waiting and where you see impatience around you? Where are good places for impatience? What are good reasons for impatience? Who has a good right to be impatient? What would it mean for you to pray with and for those who are rightly impatient? Let the Spirit lead you in such prayer
