What Are We Singing: The Days of Elijah

"Sing On!

The next time you are in a worship service and are singing the now wildly popular Days of Elijah; think about what you are saying… and what you are willing to do.

Are you ready to gather in the harvest? Are you ready to shout, “Prepare ye the way of the Lord!”?"

Universalis: Morning Prayer (Lauds)

Universalis: Morning Prayer (Lauds):
"Psalm 62 (63)
Thirsting for God

O God, you are my God, I wait for you from the dawn. My soul thirsts for you, my body longs for you. I came to your sanctuary,as one in a parched and waterless land, so that I could see your might and your glory. My lips will praise you, for your mercy is better than life itself. Thus I will bless you throughout my life, and raise my hands in prayer to your name; my soul will be filled as if by rich food,and my mouth will sing your praises and rejoice. I will remember you as I lie in bed, I will think of you in the morning, for you have been my helper, and I will take joy in the protection of your wings. My soul clings to you; your right hand raises me up."

Preparation Begins!

USCCB - (NAB) - December 2, 2007:
"Reading II
Rom 13:11-14

Brothers and sisters: You know the time; it is the hour now for you to awake from sleep. For our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed; the night is advanced, the day is at hand. Let us then throw off the works of darkness and put on the armor of light; let us conduct ourselves properly as in the day, not in orgies and drunkenness, not in promiscuity and lust, not in rivalry and jealousy. But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the desires of the flesh."

Prayer for Today: On this first day of Advent, let us not only prepare our houses for Christmas but our hearts and souls too.
