3rd week of Advent - A prayer

Expectant God

The heavens can no longer hold

your abundant love,

So you pour out the gift

of your embodied self

Relinquishing the beauty of your majesty,

To adorn the pale colours of our humanity.

Choosing to enter into this world

in a place of scarcity and need.

Reveal to us this hidden world

of poverty,

of refugees,

of suffering.

As you choose this as the place of your birth

Let us choose this to be the place of our rebirth.

Rebuild us,

Transform us,

Make us anew.

We ask this through Christ our Lord, Amen.
