Scripture for the Third Sunday in Advent

Hebrews 12:1

Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.

Almighty God, empower us by the Holy Spirit to throw off those things that hinder us and the sin that entangles us so that we can persevere in the work You have called us to do. Through Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with You forever and ever. Amen.
