An Advent Prayer

O Lord, you who raise the lowly and humble the arrogant, have mercy on those of us who are disheartened and broken.

Holy One, raise us who have fallen, show yourself to those who call upon you daily, and heal those who are sick and wounded.

Gentle Shepherd, feed the hungry, free all who are held captive by prisons seen and unseen, strengthen the weak, encourage those who lose heart. Let us be like Mary and let Jesus once again be born within us and remind us, O Lord, that all nations shall know that You alone are God.”
