In this holy season of Advent, we pray for God’s blessing on our world, our friends and ourselves.
Come, loving God, as you wait for us to recognise
your presence in our world.
Be with all who are waiting today,
waiting for relief in times of need,
waiting for news of loved ones far away,
waiting for treatment in times of illness,
waiting for death, when earthly life is drawing to a close.
Help us to wait in hope for the fullness of your coming
through Christ our Lord. Amen.
May the Lord when he comes find us watching and waiting. Amen.
