A Prayer for Advent 5

December 3, 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 hope and joy,

the day draws near when the glory of your Son

will brighten the night of the waiting world.

Let no sorrow hinder the joy

of those who seek him.

Let no sin obscure the vision of wisdom

seen by those who find him.

We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
