Isaiah 7:13-14; 9:6-7
Then Isaiah said: ‘Hear then, O house of David! Is it too little for you to weary mortals, that you weary my God also? Therefore, the Lord himself will give you a sign. Look, the young woman is with child and shall bear a son, and shall name him Immanuel. For a child has been born for us, a son given to us; authority rests upon his shoulders; and he is named Wonderful Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. His authority shall grow continually, and there shall be endless peace for the throne of David and his kingdom. He will establish and uphold it with justice and with righteousness from this time onwards and for evermore.The zeal of the Lord of hosts will do this.
Read the text, preferably aloud. As you hear the words of the Sacred Text, “listen with the ear of your heart” for a word or short phrase that God has for you this day. Take a few minutes to write what you hear in your heart
