오소서 (O So Suh)

ECL Lead Pastor Coby Cagle shares a prayer from Korean composer Geonyong Lee, and offers a meditation on the role of lament and intercession in Advent.

Geon-yong Lee was born in 1947 in Pyongannam-do, in what is now North Korea. His father was a minister. Following the Korean War, the family moved to what is now South Korea in 1953 where Mr. Lee grew up in Seoul. He grew to become a very influential composer. Mr. Lee is among the many Anglicans actively working toward reunification of the Korean peninsula. Mr. Lee composed the words and music of this hymn in 1988 while attending a workshop at Bossey, Geneva, with the World Council of Churches.

During Advent and Christmas, Art Story Mission is exploring Prayer through a curated collection of historical and multicultural prayers. As we pray along with Christ followers from around the world and throughout history, we hope that your Advent season will be a time of renewed prayer and preparation for the coming Christmas celebration.

We want this season of Art Story Mission to be a simple offering, keeping with the spirit of Advent. We asked 6 people to select a prayer and include it in their daily prayer time. Each week we will feature a prayer curated by a member of our community, along with a reflection from that person’s experience with the prayer.
