Prayer for the First Sunday of Advent
O God of our Hope, Come~
Our weary world longs to rejoice
in the fulfillment of your promise.
Grant us a thrill of hope
as you shepherd us through these weeks,
leading to the celebration of
our dear Savior’s birth.
Open our eyes and hearts
to receive glimpses of your presence
in our days.
Make us grateful for all your blessings.
Fill us with hope, peace,
joy, and love
as we seek to be your Advent people,
to live in joyful hope.
We ask this through Christ,
our Savior and our hope.
