Prayer for the First Sunday of Advent
O Come, God of our Hope~
In these days of preparation,
grant us patience to await your coming.
Secure us in the shelter of your presence, and anchor us in your still-speaking word.
Grant us the courage
to speak your truth,
to plant seeds of justice,
to be branches of reconciliation.
Fill us with your abundant love,
that we may be that love to others,
making real, once again,
your presence in our world.
We ask this through Christ,
our Savior and our Hope,
