Advent First

advent1

Our prayer this day, as we enter into a new liturgical year and a renewed way of speaking in liturgy, is based upon the readings of the First Sunday of Advent

Lord, we strive to be attentive to your role in our lives.  We seek to see your face.

We are the work of your hands, may our hands be about your work.

Do let let us wander sleepily from your ways, but would that you meet us doing right.  Do not allow our hearts to harden to the awesomeness of Your wonder.

Might we be watchful and alert for you, O Lord.  Only you know the time, be it in the evening, or at midnight, or at cockcrow, or in the morning when Your fullness will be revealed to us.  We will call upon your name seeking new life in You.

O Lord, you are faithful, bestowing many blessings upon us.  May we be firm in faith until; the end, irreproachable in our continued watchful for you. Rouse your power, O Lord, and come to save us. Return for the sake of your servants,
