A Prayer for the third Sunday of Advent

A Prayer for the third Sunday of Advent

The coming of our Lord is near and we await his coming,

Light of the world draw close,

Shine on us with your guiding presence,

Shine in us with your truth and forgiveness,

Shine through us with your mercy and love.

The coming of our Lord is near and we await his coming,

Bring light and life and love into our world, 

Lead us to the fullness of life,

Where peace and righteousness kiss,

Where truth and justice embrace.

Come Lord Jesus Come

You who are love incarnate,

You who give life eternal,

You who are the One in whom all things find completion,

Draw close and teach us the ways of peace.

Come Lord Jesus Come,

You who are fully human yet fully God, 

Come again into our world,

Come again into our lives,

Draw close, come again and make us whole.

Amen
