Lord, hear the prayers of your people.
May we who celebrate the birth of your Son as man Rejoice in the gift of eternal life when he comes in glory, for he lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
Loving God, It is growing in my heart:
An awareness and gratitude of your constant love for me; Like the sun rising in the East to warm and comfort my life and to bring new growth.
Thank you for these weeks of prayer.
In the spirit of the season my waiting, my patience, feels sacred.
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!
May the Lord bless us, protect us from all evil and bring us to everlasting life.
