First Sunday of Advent - November 28

Read: Matthew 24:37-44
37) 'As it was in Noah's day, so will it be when the Son of man comes.
38) For in those days before the Flood people were eating, drinking, taking wives, taking husbands, right up to the day Noah went into the ark,
39) and they suspected nothing till the Flood came and swept them all away. This is what it will be like when the Son of man comes.
40) Then of two men in the fields, one is taken, one left;
41) of two women grinding at the mill, one is taken, one left.
42) 'So stay awake, because you do not know the day when your master is coming.
43) You may be quite sure of this, that if the householder had known at what time of the night the burglar would come, he would have stayed awake and would not have allowed anyone to break through the wall of his house.
44) Therefore, you too must stand ready because the Son of man is coming at an hour you do not expect.
Prayer: Father, Jesus, Holy Spirit, we want to look for you this Advent. We give this time to You and ask You to surprise us with Your presence and Your love. Any time of the day or night, we want to know Your touch and receive your Word into our hearts.
