A Prayer for Advent 1

Gracious God, 

We begin this Advent season with hopeful hearts and a forward gaze. We can't wait to celebrate the most miraculous birth - you, you, God, coming into our world as one of us. 

We are so grateful for your presence among us and for your willingness to take on human form so that we might know you more fully. 

Please guide us this Advent into a closer relationship with you and help us realize that no matter how much we try to prepare for your coming and imagine you far off in the heavens, you are already here, loving us as we are each and every day.
