Advent Prayers and Marian Art From the Heart

God of power and mercy, d64ce8b3aa2bb706aa05063cc1db4f09
open our hearts in welcome. 
Remove the things that hinder us from receiving Christ with joy, 
so that we may share his wisdom 
and become one with him when he comes in glory, 
for he lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, 
one God, for ever and ever.  Amen

Our Lady of Expectation
Father in heaven, e21765e3dd929f97601556531bd43e3c
our hearts desire the warmth of your love 
and our minds are searching for the light of 
your Word. 
Increase our longing for Christ our Savior 
and give us the strength to grow in love, 
that the dawn of his coming may find us rejoicing 
in his presence 
and welcoming the light of his truth. 
We ask this in the name of Jesus the Lord.

Father in heaven, 
the day draws near when the glory of your Son 
will make radiant the night of the waiting world. 
May the lure of greed not impede us 
from the joy which moves the hearts of those who 
seek him. 
May the darkness not blind us 
to the vision of wisdom which fills the minds 
of those who find him. 
We ask this in the name of Jesus the Lord.


Father, in the wilderness of the Jordan 6cd497eaba6b8e6ab53e3b576adf884f
you sent a messenger to prepare people's hearts 
for the coming of your Son. 
Help me to hear his words and repent of my sins, 
so that I may clearly see the way to walk, 
the truth to speak, ff392fd84f8ed1308091ef623179ffc2
and the life to live for Him, 
our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
