Prayer for ADVENT

Lord God,
in this holy season of Advent,

your Church joyfully awaits the coming of our Saviour who enlightens our hearts

and dispels the darkness of ignorance and sin.

Our hearts desire the warmth of your love

and our minds are searching

for the light of your Word.

 Increase our longing for Christ our Savior

and give us the strength to grow in love,

that the dawn of his coming

may find us rejoicing in his presence

and welcoming the light of his truth. 
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
