2021 Advent Series – Week 1

Video transcript

Hi, I’m Stevie Wills, Community Education Officer, at CBM Australia. 

I love praying the words of Scripture. 

Each Sunday during Advent this year, we’ll be praying scriptures that promise the Hope Filled Vision that was cast via the birth of Jesus. A vision of peace, justice, and righteousness throughout creation.  

While we await this hope-filled vision to be fulfilled, we also find in Scripture the promise that God will be with the oppressed and those who are struggling. Here at CBM we know that people with disabilities who live in poverty are among the poorest of the poor. 

Let’s pray together the words of Psalm 9:9. 

Lord God, may you be a refuge for the oppressed, and a stronghold in times of trouble. Amen
