(an acrostic prayer)
Majestic Father, Holy God, and creator of all of creation, we love You and we worship You with all that we are today.
Accept our pleas for forgiveness and extend Your Holy Hands to us as we reach out to You in humility and regretfulness.
Recend Your judgement on Your children for the sake of Your Son, Jesus Christ, our Savior.
You are the seeker of those who You have called to be Yours. We long to hear You say, “Come, my Child.”
Send Your Holy Spirit to uncover our eyes as we wait with anticipation for the coming of Your Son to receive Your children.
Send Your light into our lives again as we wait to celebrate Your birth and life among us this day, Father.
Open our lives to receive Your light and to reflect that light to those You have placed in our path today, and each day we live, dear God!
Negate our darkness with the hope of Your light, Father. We need Your forgiveness and purifying touch in order to be lights in this world.
Giver of life, forgiver of sin and lover of Your children, we worship You in the spirit of holiness and mercy today. Thank You, Lord for the grace to live in Your light!
