At the beginning of Advent, I made a new prayer promise to help me prepare for Christ’s birth into my heart once again. I vowed to do something kind for someone different each day. One day, I sent a Starbuck’s card and note to my brother-in-law, who was having a particularly hard day. I sent a friend a meaningful song that had recently spoken to me. I reached out to relatives across the country to express my gratitude and love for them in my life. As I sealed my Christmas cards, I said a prayer specifically for each family and friend addressed on the envelope. It was a powerful experience for me and it changed the way I pray. I knew this couldn’t just be an Advent activity; this is how I should be living every day. Through this new resolution, I am allowing God to transform my heart for others.
