Advent Prayer 1
Lord God, as I rush from work to errands to shopping, and into days ahead filled with decorating and baking and wrapping, and as I collapse into my bed this night, mentally ticking off all I “accomplished,” replace my weariness, my stress, my compulsion, with your HOPE, hope for your loving promises fulfilled, for my future, the future of my family, and of our dear Brunswick Church. You are King over all of it, over all of my world. And your son came (is coming!) to bring the world hope. That’s what really matters, that we have your hope.
Advent Prayer 2
Lord, grant me to greet the coming day in peace.
Help me in all things to rely on your holy will.
In every hour of the day, reveal your will to me.
Bless my dealings with all who surround me.
Teach me to treat all that comes to me throughout the day with peace of soul and firm conviction you will govern all.
In unforeseen events, let me not forget all are sent by you.
Teach me to act firmly and wisely, without embitterment and embarrassing others.
Help me to bear the fatigue of the coming day with all that it shall bring.
Direct my will and teach me to pray.
Advent Prayer 3
In the stillness before the dawn, God, help me to remember and receive the peace you want for me, YOUR peace.
There is nothing that can remove that blanket of peace this day, and all my days.
Advent Prayer 4
These days have jolted me from my comfortable corner.
I am shaken and confused…
Again, this jagged rock juts across my path.
I am thrown and tossed …
All reality seems lost under my load.
I am alone yet I cry out…
Somehow my cries are heard.
From your dwelling place, God, you hear me and are near.
I am protected and calmed …
You have lifted up my crying head.
I am safe and secure…
You, Oh Lord have blessed me along the way.
