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
spaces to hear your voice each day.
We who are anxious over many things
to your coming among us.
We who are blessed in so many ways
the complete joy of your kingdom.
We whose hearts are heavy
joy of your presence.
darkness, yet seeking the light.
To you we say, “Come, Lord Jesus!”
By Henri Nouwen
