God of mercy and consolation, help us in our weakness and free us from sin.
Hear our prayers that we may rejoice at the coming of your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
Lord of all, you seek me out and ask me to go with you.
As I begin these early days of Advent help me to listen for your call in my life.
Give me the courage to listen to your voice and the freedom to leave my fishing boats and my nets and follow you.
I want to draw strength from your friend, Andrew, and from your presence in my life, always befriending me and offering me your love.
