(an acrostic prayer)
Almighty God, You who sent Your Son to the world in the form of a baby, to save us from our sins, we come to bow down and worship You today!
Descend upon us, O Lord, in this season of preparation and hope and love and joy. Help us to renew our sense of Your calling on each of us today.
Verify our hearts, O God, as we ask forgiveness and cleansing from our unrighteousness through the blood of Your Son, our Savior, Jesus Christ.
Enter into the busyness of this season in order to calm, to silence, to fill and to reveal Your will, O Lord.
Narrow our focus from the things of this world’s season to the realization, again, of who You are, O God!
Tender to us Your Spirit, to speak to us and to guide us and to feed us as we prepare to celebrate Your physical birth. Help us to live in the certainty of Your second coming as Lord and Savior!
In the name of the reason for this advent, we pray, even Jesus Christ, Amen!
