An Advent Prayer… about my sin…

December 14, 2008

“… My will is without power of decision or resolution. My heart is without affection, and full of leaks. My memory has no retention, so I forget easily the lessons learned, and thy truths seep away.

Give me a broken heart that yet carries home the water of grace” (Valley of Vision, 129).

 

Only a broken heart can nourish the abounding waters of grace in God becoming a man. Father, please give me a broken heart to enjoy Christmas. Amen.
