Prayer for the First Sunday of Advent
O Come, God of our Hope~
We invite your word into our hearts.
May we be awake and alert
to your presence in our lives,
to your hope for our world.
Call us out of our apathy,
and our own selfish desires.
Help us to live as people who strive
to unite, rather than divide,
to build up, rather than destroy,
to spread light, rather than darkness.
Make your vision and hope
for this world
our own vision,
and grant us the wisdom, courage
to work toward it.
