An Advent Prayer

. 1 min read
Christ Jesus, Master of both the light and the darkness,
Send your Holy Spirit upon our preparations for Christmas.
We who have so much to do
            Seek quiet
spaces to hear your voice each day.
We who are anxious over many things
            Look forward
to your coming among us.
We who are blessed in so many ways
            Long for
the complete joy of your kingdom.
We whose hearts are heavy
            Seek the
joy of your presence.
We are your people,
            Walking in
darkness, yet seeking the light.

To you we say, “Come, Lord Jesus!”
By Henri Nouwen
