AdventCountdown to Christmas: Countdown to Christmas
Prayer for Advent
LORD JESUS, in these four busy weeks of Advent, help us to pause to remember the depth of your love for us. Beyond anything we deserved or could have imagined, love led you to a stable in Bethlehem and all the way to Calvary.
Open our hearts to welcome you anew so that we have something to share with a needy world each day. Grant us the joy of your friendship and bring us the strength, courage and determination to serve our brothers and sisters in your name. Amen
