An Advent Prayer

An Advent Prayer

Sister Patricia Schap shared this beautiful Advent prayer at our recent Oblate Advent retreat. As we anticipate the coming of our Savior, let us sing praises to our God in welcome and thanksgiving!

Advent Prayer

Lord Jesus,

Master of both the light and the darkness,
send your holy spirit upon our preparations for Christmas.

We who have so much to do
seek quiet spaces to hear your voice each day.

We who are anxious over many things
look forward to your coming among us.

We who are blessed in so many ways
long for the complete joy of your kingdom.

We whose hearts are heavy
seek the joy of your presence.

We are your people,
walking in darkness,
yet seeking the light.

To you we say, "Come Lord Jesus!"
