Advent Day 6
The Journey Towards Bethlehem
Year of Our LORD, 12.6.2008

But My people would not hearken to My voice;
and Israel would none of ME.

So I gave them up unto their own hearts’ lust:
and they walked in their own counsels.

Oh that My people had hearkened unto ME,
and Israel had walked in My ways!

I should soon have
subdued their enemies,
and turned My hand
against their adversaries.

Psalm 81:11-14

O Gracious Heavenly FATHER,
to Whom all hearts are open,
all desires known,
and from Whom no secrets are hid:
cleanse the thoughts of my heart
through the in-breathing of Thy HOLY SPIRIT,
that I may perfectly love THEE
and worthily magnify Thy Holy Name,
through CHRIST our LORD.
