In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.  Amen.

Jesus tells us to stay awake, be ready.  Have we prepared ourselves to open our hearts to Jesus?  Do we need to say sorry to someone for our actions and seek reconiliation?  Have we made peace with those around us?  Advent is a time to reconcile with one another so that together in peace we can remember  and celebrate Jesus coming 2000 years ago and we can look forward to his coming again.

 The Advent wreath is a symbol of God's coming light in the world.    The circle of evergreen represents everlasting life with God. 

God of hope,

Send your spirit of love and truth

Among us today.

Let us prepare our hearts for the coming of our loving Jesus.

Bring peace to the lion and the lamb,

the cat and the mouse,

the hawk and the sparrow,

teach each of us

to get along and live in peace. 

We pray:

Loving God,

Help us to be faithful and brave to spread the Good News of Jesus

send your Holy Spirit to guide us to speak about Jesus in our daily lives.

Amen.

We continue with our Advent Prayer:

God's hope to direct me.

God's love to surround me.

God's joy to warm me.

God's peace to comfort me.

Bless our Advent journey to Christmas with light and patience,

​In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.  Amen.
