Scripture for the Second Sunday in Advent

Isaiah 6:8

Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?” And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”

Heavenly Father, we find it so easy to want you to send someone else—­the priests or the teachers or others who serve. We think they are more qualified than we are, and we’re not sure that our participation is important. But deep in our hearts the Holy Spirit is prompting us to say, “Here am I. Send me!” Empower us by the Spirit to act on those promptings. Give us the motivation, the courage, and the strength to say, “Here am I, Lord. Send me!” We pray in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Saviour. Amen.
