Advent One: A Prayer


Advent One


Father of Creation,

God of Hope.

The prophets of old looked forward,

With expectation,

And anticipation,

To the arrival of the coming King.

To Him be all praise and glory.


Stirring Imaginations,

And articulating action,

They dreamed a dream,

And hoped a hope,

For the arrival of the coming King.

To Him be all praise and glory.


In the advent of your Son,

The darkest night receives the dawn.

There is no darkness so dark,

His light cannot shine.

To Him be all praise and glory.


In the advent of your Son,

A wounded world receives healing balm,

There is not a hurt that He will not heal.

To Him be all praise and glory.


Father of Creation,

God of Hope,T

The prophetic Church looks out,

With sadness at the suffering,

With tears at the trauma,In a world of climate breakdown,

For the arrival of the coming Kingdom.


As temperatures rise,

Maranatha, Come Lord Jesus.

As sea levels rise,

Maranatha, Come Lord Jesus.

For our children, Lord have mercy,

For our Grandchildren, Christ have mercy,

For the world’s most vulnerable,

Maranatha,

Come Lord Jesus.


As we wait, Let us pray.

As we wait, Let us act.

As we wait,

Let us love.


Maranatha,

Come Lord Jesus.


With the coming of your Son

,A violent world will be transformed,

In the presence of love there is always change.

To Him be all praise and glory.


With the coming of your Son,

Our aching hearts will know close embrace.

There is not a tear He will not wipe away.

To Him be all praise and glory.


Father of Creation,

God of Hope.Your covenant community looks forward,

With expectation,With anticipation,

For the arrival of the coming King.

To Him be all praise and Glory.

Amen
