Advent, Second Week, Thursday

The Lord is the eternal God, Creator of the ends of the earth. He does not faint nor grow weary, and His knowledge is beyond our full grasp. He gives strength to the fainting; He makes the weak vigorous. They who hope in the Lord will renew their strength, they will soar as with eagles’ wings; they will run and not grow weary, walk and not grow faint. Isaiah 40, 25-31 Lord, You are the Creator of me, of all the world I know, so I worship You. Let me hope strongly in You; help me walk and not grow faint, run and not grow weary.
