Prayer for Advent Season
As we enter the Advent season, let us take time to pray for all those who are preparing for Christmas.
Lord, we pray for all those who are busy with last-minute shopping, wrapping presents and baking cookies. Help them to remember the true meaning of Christmas – your son, Jesus Christ, who came into the world to save us from our sins.
We also pray for those who are struggling this holiday season – those who are grieving the loss of a loved one, those who are facing financial difficulties, and those who are feeling lonely or isolated. May they feel your presence in their lives and know that they are not alone.
And finally, we pray for ourselves – that we would keep Christ at the center of our Christmas celebrations and not get caught up in the materialism and consumerism of this world. Help us to remember the true joy of Christmas – worshiping you and sharing your love with others. Amen.
