|The Advent Wreath is fully lit!|
Holy One, we lift our hearts to You in praise and thanksgiving.
Envelop us in your light, O God, that your radiance may shine through us into the world.
Make us bearers of your gospel with each step we take, and worthy disciples in your Way.
Purify our hearts of all malice, enmity, or carelessness, and forgive us our offenses, as well as those done in our name.
Open our spirits to receive your truth as we await the coming of your Son, O Almighty One.
Bend near to those who call upon you, Merciful God, and accept our prayers.
