Prayer: We Welcome You

Here’s a prayer of praise and adoration for Advent or Christmas. It was written by Bruce Prewer.

Prayer

And the Spirit of the Lord will rest on him—
the Spirit of wisdom and understanding,
the Spirit of counsel and might,
the Spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord.
Isaiah 11:2

Lord Jesus, you come like a genius far ahead of his time.
You come as a miracle, not breaking the laws of nature
but fulfilling them.

You are the future towards which the Spirit draws us,
the salvation offered to all humanity,
the joy exceeding all exciting pleasures,
the destiny which was prepared for us
before the foundation of the world.

You come as the humble Perfection outside our grasp
yet graciously within our reach.
You are the Beauty that is to come;
the Beauty that calls us into that most natural
of all miracles: the ministry of love!

O God’s unique Genius, we welcome you
as Saviour, Friend and Lord.
Amen!
