All-powerful God, help us to look forward in hope to the coming of our Savior.
May we live as he has taught, ready to welcome him with burning love and faith.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
Jesus, in the darkness of these Advent nights let me be guided by the light of your word.
Give me the humility to be led by you and the wisdom to learn from you.
I feel your light in my life and in the world.
I am grateful for the Savior who awaits us, and eagerly await the time of rejoicing.
Let me look forward in hope and turn to you with great trust, knowing you will guide my steps along the unknown path of this day.
