Advent Prayer 2017

Art by Stephen W. Hiemstra

By Stephen W. Hiemstra

Most Merciful Father,

Draw me near to you, oh Lord, of joyful times!

Let me bless you and praise your name—

“Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace” (Isa 9:6).

For you have written your law on our hearts (Jer 31:33) and

given us a new song, a marvelous thing of your own creation (Ps 98).

In what other season have we so much joy?

For such, we give thanks through the power of your Holy Spirit and

in Jesus’ name, Amen.
