A Prayer for Advent

November 29, 2021

Entering Advent, join me in praying for The Church and for the people who are the churches. These prayers come from the Book of Common Prayer: Daily Prayer, published by our Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) sisters and brothers. It’s been on my shelf, recently re-discovered, and offers a wealth of riches. For example —

God of all wisdom,

our hearts yearn for the warmth of your love,

and our minds search for the light of your Word.

Increase our longing for Christ our Savior,

and strengthen us to grow in love,

that at the dawn of his coming

we may rejoice in his presence

and welcome the light of his truth.

This we ask in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
