Prayer for the Second Sunday of Advent
O Come, God of Peace-
Open our hearts to seek your peace
in the midst of conflict.
Open our ears
to hear and understand
those different from us,
to strive for the peace you envision for our divided, conflicted, war-torn world.
Give us the courage
to think and dream beyond
our comfort zones,
the desire 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 and justice.
In the name of Jesus, our Peace,
