Prayer for the Third Sunday of Advent
O God of our Joy, Come~
O God of Wisdom, Come~
Order all things far and nigh,
and show us the path of knowledge,
of justice, of love.
Teach us your way of compassion
as you call us forth
to feed those who are hungry,
to warm those who are cold,
to heal those who are broken-hearted.
May we embrace and answer with joy
our call to be your servants
of goodwill here on earth.
Give us wisdom, courage and strength
as you light our way to creating
a more just and peaceful world.
We ask this through Christ,
our Savior and our joy.
