A Prayer of Hope for the First Week of Advent
O Lord, as we enter this season of Advent, this time of waiting and anticipation, fill me with the hope of Christ.
Please help me to stay in great expectation for your great light to shine in this world, for all who are living in darkness to see the dawning of your light.
This world can be so dark, troubling, and whole of despair, yet you are light and love.
May your light fill all the darkest corners of this world.
And all the darkest corners of my own heart.
May your love conquer all despair and hate, leading us all to a better life in you.
This is the hope of Christmas that the birth of a baby – Jesus Christ, your Son – will change the world and will work a change in my own life.
Lord, I pray to be filled with this hope that light will triumph over darkness, love will conquer evil, and Jesus will save us all.
This I pray through your Son Jesus Christ, Amen.🙏🙏
