Thursday Collect – Week 2

Second Sunday of Advent

Merciful God, who sent your messengers the prophets to

preach repentance and prepare the way for our salvation:

Give us grace to heed their warnings and forsake our sins,

so that we may greet with joy the coming of Jesus Christ our

Redeemer; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy

Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

For personal reflection: 

Preparing the way for salvation is difficult work. It begins with a call to repentance which means turning from our ways to God. Will you commit to turning to God today?
