Advent Prayer: Light a Light

Here’s a prayer of petition for the season of Advent.  It was written by Rachel Hackenberg.

Advent Prayer

Light a light for us, O Jesus,
Messenger of the Living God.
Light a light for us that is brighter
than our decorations and vain joys.

Light a light that is stronger
than our fears and faith.
For we are flailing in the dark,
injuring one another as we grope
for certainty and assurance along our way.

Light a light that blazes in brilliance and proves
the shadows in our lives to be as they are:
insidious and without foundation.

Light such a light, we ask this
in despair for direction
and for peace.
