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 places to hear you voice each day.

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

We who are blessed in so many ways
long for complete joy in 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”
