Pray: #AdventWord Day 18

Several years ago, a conference presenter shared their daily discipline of opening their news app and spending time in prayer for the first three headlines. I have occasionally practiced this digital liturgy and intercessory prayer. These were the top three headlines yesterday. I do not have a lot of words worth writing, only an invitation to consider your own offerings of prayer on behalf of the medical personnel who continue to lay their lives on the line, scientists who make vaccinations and tests possible at an alarmingly fast rate, and even those in legislative power who are responsible for the implementation of economic relief for the many individuals and small businesses struggling financially in the midst of the pandemic. I pray they would do so sooner rather than later. That’s my Advent hope in waiting.
