Advent 2021: A Healing Promise by Jacqueline Woody
If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”
-2 Chronicles 7:14

A Healing Promise
In whispers, songs and hearts
see the trees, hear the birds, listen to the rhythm
Of your heart, the breathing of the rain, the warmth of the sunshine.
Symphony in nature sounds,
the wondrous creativity and peaceful presence of an awesome, almighty God.
Silence in the middle of His creation.
Listen carefully though…..
God speaks in whispers, in songs, and in our hearts….the promise of healing.
Dear Lord God Almighty, heal our land, heal your people, heal our hearts and spirits, hear our humble prayers. You are the balm in Gilead. Amen

Join us in a time of reflection, expectation, and contemplation during the season of Advent 2021.
Each day a new reflection with a scripture and prayer will be posted on the Metropolitan AME Church website and social media to encourage you to hear the words of those reflecting, anticipating, and contemplating with you in community as we thank God for what God has done, notice what God is actively doing and anticipate what God will do next.
Read along with us each day or download the book to read and write along with us offline.
