Fourth Week of Advent

Heavenly Father, help us to celebrate Jesus' coming in joy and peace.  May we welcome him into our lives in a new way this Christmas, allowing him to love and act in and through us.  Help us to be like Mary, always ready and eager to do your will.  Increase our faith and love.  We ask all this through Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever.  Amen.

Third Week of Advent

Lord, please hear our prayers.  May we always rejoice in your redeeming love.  Open our eyes to the goodness around us and grant us the light of your grace that we may never be overcome by the darkness of sin.  We ask this of you through Jesus our Lord.  Amen.

Lord, give us pure hearts and minds as we await the coming of your Son.  Increase our hope.  We praise and thank you for all the good things you have done and continue to do for us.  May we serve you and one another in the love Jesus came to earth to bring.  We ask this through Christ our Lord.  Amen.
