Today is Wednesday the 11th of December, in the Second Week of Advent.

Come, my way, my truth, my life.  As I enter this time of prayer today, I begin by acknowledging my need for God, to show me the way, to teach me the truth, to give me life.

Today’s reading is from the Prophet Isaiah

‘They run and do not grow weary’.  There may be tiredness, or a bit of weariness, in me now, even now as I’m praying.   If there is, how do I respond to this promise of renewed vigour and energy and life?

How much faith, how much trust do I place in this promise? Do I believe it? Do I want to believe it?

As I listen again, can I feel the energy in these words, the strenghtening, renewing power of the words themselves?

In all honesty, and in my own words, what do I want to say now to the God who makes me this promise of renewed life?
