1st week of Advent - A prayer

Wake us up Lord!

God of Salvation,

Wake us up Lord!

The night is nearly over.

Let us begin our Advent journey.

Move us from our lives

Of greed and selfishness,

From our globalized world

Of inequality and exploitation,

To your kingdom

Of righteousness and mercy.

To a transformed world,

Where peace is built on understanding not weapons,

The poor are empowered to live their lives to the full,

Businesses are built on need not greed

And your Creation is nurtured not abused.

Wake us up Lord!

Let us live as people of the light.
