There is no doubt about it! Christmas is coming!

Yesterday was the beginning of advent; a time of hopeful and joyful expectation leading up to the celebration of the birth of Jesus. Let us share an advent prayer to help us reflect on Jesus, the one who came to bring joy to our world.

Advent Prayer  

(Written by Christine Sine)

The coming of our Lord is near,

And we wait in joyful expectation,

Draw close, Lord Jesus Christ,

Shed your light on all that is filled with darkness.

The coming of our Lord is near,

And we wait with hope filled hearts,

Draw close, God’s beloved son,

Teach us the wonder of your all embracing love.

As you reflect on the prayer above, ask yourself these questions

What brings me joy?

How can I bring joy to others during this advent season?
