THE SECOND SUNDAY OF ADVENT
Prayer for the week.

 

Sovereign Lord 
At this time of decision in our national life, we are bombarded by grandiose promises, disparaging remarks about opponents, and a focus on big personalities. Turn our hearts to recognise your priorities, and remember that your way of leadership is not to grab power at all costs; for you came to help us face the future with joy and confidence, excluding no-one, and confident in your everlasting love.  Amen. 

Canon Carol Wardman (Prayer by permission of The Church in Wales.)

prayer
- Collect -

 

Father in heaven, 
who sent your Son to redeem the world 
and will send him again to be our judge: 
give us grace so to imitate him 
in the humility and purity of his first coming 
that, when he comes again, 
we may be ready to greet him 
with joyful love and firm faith; 
through Jesus Christ our Lord, 
who is alive and reigns  
with you and the Holy Spirit, 
one God, now and for ever.
Amen.
