Roman Catholic Prayer: First Week of Advent – Thursday Prayer

Opening Prayer:
Father, we need your help.

Free us from sin and bring us to life.

Support us by your power.

Grant this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.

Closing Prayer:
God of strength and protection, I turn to you because I need help.

I long to be free enough to trust that I can lean on you.

But I become afraid.

Help me to trust in you, Lord.

Your strength and power are a gentle place of protection.

Be a safe refuge when I am being trampled.

I long for your help, your protecting care.

Help to deliver me from the cold loneliness of these dark nights.

Amen.
