Advent daybook, 8: Prepare the way of the Lord

My Advent daybook for these 24 days of waiting. Join me, won't you?

Matthew 3:1-12: Prepare the way of the Lord



Collect for the Second Sunday of Advent 

Merciful God, who sent your messengers the prophets to preach repentance and prepare the way for our salvation: give us grace to heed their warnings and forsake our sins, that we may greet with joy the coming of Jesus Christ our Redeemer; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen. (source
