Prayer of Approach for Advent

Here’s a prayer of approach for Advent, written by Bruce Prewer.

Advent Prayer of Approach 

Holy Light, God of faithful witnesses, please shine in our hearts with all the joys of your coming Son. May we be delivered from trusting the artificial lights of our generation, and from the ephemeral, decorative lights of this season.

Bring us into the open place where, dazed yet not afraid, we may praise you with wonder and adore you with profound joyfulness.

Through Jesus of Nazareth, our Christ and Saviour.
