A Prayer for Advent
God who entered fully into our broken world,
you know our journeys in all their complexity of joy and sorrow.
We cannot see what lies ahead for us
but we can look forward to celebrating your loving sacrifice.
Keep us mindful that one day we will see you face to face:
help us to await that time in joyful hope, trusting in your great love for us.
'You have made us for yourself, O Lord, and our hearts are restless until they rest in you'
