Open Our Eyes (Bk)
Daily prayers for Advent
Open Our Eyes is a welcome accompaniment to the Advent days of anticipating Christ’s birth. Follow its invitation of prophetic prayers and vibrant artwork to watch and wait for the coming of the Holy One. Open your eyes and heart to the wideness of God, and God’s gentle but persistent call for justice and mercy.
Prayers and images are sequenced into weekly themes:
- I am near, so near
- I will lead you
- I am yours
- I am with you always
Return to the book during other seasons as well, to be immersed in God’s presence and to hear God’s call anew.
