A Prayer for Advent

Today, I would like to share with you a prayer I wrote for the opening of one of our classes.  There are a few who have already heard the prayer and prayed it with me, but as the days passed since that day, it grows deeper in meaning.   Please pray this with me :

+  Heavenly Father,  in this season of advent,  we are truly thankful for the blessings of our brothers and sisters, family and friends.   Give to us, Lord, the gifts of FAITH, Hope and LOVE.

Grant us FAITH, and wisdom, to see beyond the physical world, and to see the wounded Christ not only in ourselves, but in those we meet this season.

Grant us HOPE, that we may look longingly towards heaven, to be invigorated with the anticipation of your coming and to share that hope with our brothers and sisters.

Grant us Love enough so that we can not help but to share our love with our brothers and sisters and to see you in all we meet.

We ask  this in name of Jesus our coming Lord.  AMEN.
