God of power and mercy,
open our hearts in welcome.
Remove the things that hinder us from receiving
Christ with joy.

This is from the opening prayer of the second Sunday of Advent, and has really spoken to my heart all through this season of anticipation.

So many children on the Reeces Rainbow site have had families commit to them, including Martin and Elizabeth. The hearts of so many have been opened in welcome.

My prayer this Advent is that God opens our hearts in welcome to Him, however He presents Himself to us, that He removes anything that hinders us from receiving Christ with joy, and that we may wait in joyful hope for the coming of our savior.
