Here’s an opening prayer for Advent from Bruce Prewer.
Prayer of Invocation
(inspired by Isaiah 40:3-5, Mark 1:2-3, Luke 3:4-6)
be to us as a bulldozer of the spirit.
Clear your road in us;
clear a path through the detritus of possessions and obsessions.
Thrust aside our divided aims and devious games.
Topple the ramparts of pride and the doubts that deride.
Make a highway on which Christ may come
and take possession of the whole territory of our being.
To the glory of your name we pray.
