Preparing for Christmas
December 4, 2015

The following is an Advent prayer written by Henri Nouwen, a Dutch Roman Catholic priest, theologian and writer, who lived from 1932 to 1996.

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 the light. To you we say, “Come, Lord Jesus!”
