Roman Catholic Prayer: Fourth Week of Advent – Friday Prayer

Opening Prayer:
Come, Lord Jesus, do not delay; give new courage to your people who trust in your love.

By your coming, raise us to the joy of your kingdom, where you live and reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.

Amen.

Closing Prayer:
Oh, God-With-Us, For so long you have promised forgiveness, peace, salvation.

Now in my heart, I am filled with joy because of your coming.

Thank you for your promises and for the way I can trust in you.

I feel a new freedom in my life and a courage I have not known before.

I know you came to save me and bring new life and I am so grateful to you.

Let me show my thankfulness with my life.

You have brought me through the darkness and into the light of your saving grace.

Guide my feet on the way of peace.

Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel Shall come to thee, O Israel!

May the Lord bless us, protect us from all evil and bring us to everlasting life.

Amen.
