Thursday of the second week of Advent
Lord, like a loving parent,
you offer me your comforting hand
Help me to wait for your coming with patience
and to listen to what you ask of me.
I want so much to be one of “your people”
and to live my life in you.
Thank you for the way you bless my life.
Thank you for listening to my prayers
and for planting deep in my heart
the knowledge that with you,
nothing is impossible.
May the Lord bless us,
protect us from all evil
and bring us to everlasting life.
