Master of both the light and the darkness,
send Your Holy Spirit upon our preparations for Christmas.
We who have so much to do seek quiet spaces to hear
Your voice each day.
We who are anxious over many things look forward to
Your coming among us.
We who are blessed in so many ways long for
the complete joy of Your kingdom.
We whose hearts are heavy seek
the joy of Your presence.
We are Your people, walking in darkness,
yet seeking the light.
To You we say, ‘Come Lord Jesus!”
He who testifies to these things says,
“Surely I am coming soon.”
Amen. Come, Lord Jesus!
