In this holy season of Advent, we pray for God’s blessing on our world, our friends and ourselves.
Come Lord, giver of all good gifts,
pour into our hearts a knowledge of your love.
Make us content with what we have
and ever mindful of those who have so little.
Help us to look outward, to see what we might do to enrich the lives of those around us.
Enable us to ask for those things we need which only you can give, your love, your mercy and your grace.
Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
May the Lord when he comes find us watching and waiting. Amen.
