Roman Catholic Prayer: Fourth Week of Advent – Thursday Prayer

Opening Prayer:
Father, we contemplate the birth of your Son.

He was born of the Virgin Mary and came to live among us.

May we receive forgiveness and mercy through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.

Amen.

Closing Prayer:
Oh, Emmanuel,”God-with-Us,” You have touched me; you are God-with-Me.

Thank you for these weeks of prayer.

In the spirit of the season my waiting, my patience, feels sacred.

Refine and purify my heart with the hottest flame of your love.

Give me the courage of your prophets and let me do what is right even when others don’t understand.

Bless my heart with generosity and make me ready to receive you.

Come, Lord Jesus! Come!

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

Amen.
