Advent prayer

Dearly Beloved, Grace and Peace to you.                                         Holy One, prepare your way in me.

Give me faith, like the stable, to know your presence within me.

Give me courage, like Mary, to let your life overwhelm mine.

Give me strength, like Joseph, to protect what is holy, tender and growing.

Give me patience, like the shepherds, to be still and listen.

Give me humility, like the magi, to kneel before your presence.

Give me trust, like the child, to let myself be borne into a new world.

Give me joy, like the angels, to bring good news to the poor.

Give me love, like the manger to hold Christ within.

Holy One, prepare your way in me.

                                        Deep Blessings, Pastor Steve
