An Advent Prayer

ADVENT PRAYER  Loving God, on this Advent day we turn to you in prayer. As we make our final preparations to celebrate the birth of Jesus your Son, we ask your blessing on our family and friends. Help us to welcome your light into our lives, a light that gives us the gift of love. You showed us the greatness of your love in Jesus, Emmanuel, God-with-us. You love us with an everlasting love. May your love fill our hearts, our minds and our homes. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen. Together we pray: Come, Lord Jesus.
