Prayer for the First Sunday of Advent
O Come, God of our Hope~
We invite your word into our hearts.
Awaken us, and alert us
to your presence in our lives,
to your hope for our world.
Call us out of our apathy
as we seek to live as people
who unite, rather than divide,
who build up, rather than destroy,
who spread light, rather than darkness.
Make your vision and hope
for this world our own,
and grant us the wisdom, courage
to create with you
In the name of Jesus, our Hope,
