We round out this week with an advent prayer...
God of forgiveness,
I turn to you in my great weakness and beg for your help.
Let me feel the joy growing in my heart as I anticipate your coming.
I hear the message of the prophets of old and know that the Messiah will bring new life and new ways of living.
From the humbleness of my life, help me to grow and bloom and hear the words that will change the world.
