an advent prayer

God of promise,
Make us ready for Your coming.
Help us to quiet moments of contemplation.
Help us to see awesome beauty in one another’s eyes.
Help us to hear and resound to the cries of the poor and the oppressed.
Help us to breathe in the wonders of nature.
Help us to walk along that path that leads to You.

Help us to know the only truth that will save us.

Help us to serve You until that day.
When we meet face to face.
Help us to grow closer to You with each passing day and to love you.

Come, Lord Jesus!


-Carmen L. Caltagirone
