Scripture for the First Saturday in Advent 2010

Mark 13:33-37

Be on guard! Be alert! You do not know when that time will come. It’s like a man going away: He leaves his house and puts his servants in charge, each with his assigned task, and tells the one at the door to keep watch. “Therefore keep watch because you do not know when the owner of the house will come back—whether in the evening, or at midnight, or when the rooster crows, or at dawn. If he comes suddenly, do not let him find you sleeping. What I say to you, I say to everyone: ‘Watch!

Heavenly Father, keep us ever watchful and mindful that You may come at any time. Lead us by the Holy Spirit to watch and pray so we are ready for You in that great day when Jesus returns in glory as a conquering King. Amen.
