An Advent Prayer by Henri Nouwen

Lord Jesus,
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 light.
To you we say, Come Lord Jesus....
Amen.

  1. Thanks for the prayer.

    Do you think you guys will ever be up this way? Toledo, that is. It'd be great to get together.

  3. Eric, we may be able to get your way briefly in January. I'll talk to Barb too. Perhaps Sunday the 25th in the afternoon.
