In Advent, the church finds itself caught between times. The world’s true King has already come. However, the reign of the King has not yet come in all of its fullness. In response, God’s people fast and wait and pray—and in the waiting we are changed. During Advent, we practice hope, peace, joy, and love—four virtues that grow in us and change us, making room for the new creation.

The Let Earth Receive Her King will encourage personal reflection, and individual prayer as you progress through the four virtues that mark Advent. In this expectant season we pray, Come quickly, Lord Jesus. Come, and make all things new! Let Earth Receive Her King.
