Advent 2023: An Advent Acrostic by Jacqueline Woody


“Cause me to hear Your lovingkindness in the morning; For in You do I trust; Cause me to know the way in which I should walk, For I lift up my soul to You.”

Psalm 143:8

December 9, 2023

Almighty God, Awaken your might, come save us (Psalm 80)

Direct me in the path of your commands, for there I find delight. (Psalm 119:35)

Victory and honor come from God alone.

He is my refuge, a rock where no enemy can reach me. (Psalm 62:7)

Exalt the LORD our God,

and worship at his holy mountain in Jerusalem,

for the LORD our God is holy! (Psalm 99:9)

Night watches, I meditate on thee (Psalm 63:6-7)

Teach me Your way, O LORD;

I will walk in Your truth;

Unite my heart to fear Your name. (Psalm 86:11)

Prayer: Lord, you have given us your Holy Word for a light to shine upon our path. May we walk in the way of Jesus Christ our Lord.” Thank you. Amen
