Advent prayer

“May the almighty and merciful God,

by whose grace you have placed your faith

in the First Coming of his Only Begotten Son

and yearn for his coming again

sanctify you by the radiance of Christ’s Advent

and enrich you with his blessing.

AMEN

As you run the race of this present life,

may he make you firm in faith,

joyful in hope and active in charity.

AMEN

So that, rejoicing now with devotion

at the Redeemer’s coming in the flesh,

you may be endowed with the rich reward

of eternal life

when he comes again in majesty.

AMEN

And may the blessing of almighty God,

the Father, and the Son, and the holy Spirit,

come down on you and remain with you for ever.

AMEN”
