Advent Prayer: We Journey With You

Here’s a prayer for Advent from John Birch’s Faith and Worship website.

Advent Prayer

Advent God,
we journey with you,
to Bethlehem’s stable
and a new-born King,
ears attuned
to the song of angels,
eyes alert
for Bethlehem’s star.

Forgive us
if on our journey
if we are distracted
by the tempting offers
of this world.

Keep our hearts aflame
with the hope
of Christmas,
and the promise
of a Saviour. Amen
