Week One Advent 2015 daily reading: HOPE

Hope

Week One: HOPE

This week centers on the longing of God’s people for the coming Messiah. They longed for the fulfillment of God’s promises, deliverance from exile, and the establishment of God’s Kingdom. As you go through this week, how can you identify with the prophets of Israel? How do the prophecies of the coming Messiah give you hope? Which parts of them are inspiring or encouraging for you?

PRAYER:

Almighty God, we, like Israel in exile, long for your coming. Daily, we feel the searing pain of this broken world, but we know this isn’t the end. We watch for your light on the horizon. We listen for your voice on the wind. Give us hope when we grow weary. Grant us strength when we grow weak, for you are our hope now and forevermore. Amen.
