Day 1

The First Sunday of Advent

from the Advent 2017: Joy to the World reading plan

Isaiah 9:6-7

BY She Reads Truth

Joy to the world, the Lord has come! Join us this Advent season as we read the story of Jesus’ birth. From the earliest promises of His coming in the Old Testament, to the angelic messengers announcing His birth to the shepherds, this 4-week Scripture reading plan presents the biblical story of our need for Christ and the glory of His arrival. Read with us as we anticipate and celebrate the coming of Christ, discovering anew “the glories of His righteousness and wonders of His love.”


Scripture Reading: Isaiah 9:6-7

A Prayer for the First Sunday of Advent
Almighty God, give us grace to cast away the works of darkness, and put on the armor of light, now in the time of this mortal life in which your Son Jesus Christ came to visit us in great humility; that in the last day, when He shall come again in his glorious majesty to judge both the living and the dead, we may rise to the life immortal; through Him who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.

Use this lock screen as a reminder of this truth throughout the week.
