Prayers for the Season of Advent

Presbytery in Prayer

As we begin the season of Advent this Sunday, a time during with we prepare, wait, and watch, let us strive also to live incarnationally. May our life together in our communities of faith show forth the Love, Peace, Joy, and Hope that Christ brings into our world.

God of Love, as we watch and wait this advent help us to know the Hope Peace and Joy you desire for your creation. Use us as your hands and feet to show your Love to the world. Unite our hearts with yours that we may model your way in a lost and broken world and be your presence in the lives of those lacking Hope. Make us agents of your Peace. Help us live in your Joy. We pray in the name of Jesus, the One who came as a baby and showed us first hand how to change the world. Amen.
