Sunday, December 4
Prayer for the Second Sunday of Advent
O Come, God of Peace-
Open our hearts –
to receive the love you shower upon our thirsting creation,
to hear and understand those different from us,
to strive for the peace you envision for our divided, war-torn world.
Give us the courage
to leave our comfort zones,
to spend time with you in the quiet,
that we may truly hear your call.
Grant us the wisdom, courage and strength to go
where you lead us,
building your realm of peace.
In the name of Jesus, our Peace,
