Sabbath Evenings – Advent Prayer from Henri Nouwen

November 28, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

Lord Jesus,
Master of both the
light and the darkness,
send your Holy Spirit upon
our preparations for Christmas.

We who have so much to do
seek quiet spaces to hear your voice each day.

We who are anxious over many things look
forward to your coming among us.

We who are blessed in so many ways
long for the complete joy of your kingdom.

We whose hearts are heavy
seek the joy of your presence.

We are your people,
walking in darkness,
yet seeking the light.
To you we say,
“Come Lord Jesus!”

“The Dream of St. Joseph” by Rembrandt
