Let Every Heart Prepare is a miniature devotional book with meditations for Advent and Christmas. Each meditation starts with a phrase from a hymn followed by a brief 2-page meditation. The first meditation starts on the First Sunday of Advent and the last meditation is on January 6th, the Feast of the Epiphany. Use this miniature 6" X 4.5" devotional to get you thinking about the coming of Christ during this holiday season. Each reading only takes a couple of minutes, so use anytime you have a free moment- morning, noon, or night.
Based on beautiful seasonal hymns, Crafton's daily meditations on faith, prayer, forgiveness, and healing for Advent and Christmas make an excellent companion for the season.
For centuries the words and poetry of our hymns have spoken deeply to us. Many people, in fact, find that what is heard in poetry and music sinks deeper into the soul than does ordinary prose. And so it is to the beautiful seasonal hymns that Barbara Cawthorne Crafton turns for inspiration for daily meditations during the great devotional seasons of the church year: Advent/Christmas, and Lent.
