The Season of Advent: Week One
With eager longing we await the coming of Christ at Christmas.
During the Season of Advent (3-24 December), the Sisters of Mercy Parramatta Congregation invite you to participate with us in prayer and reflection, joining with the Mercy community globally in praying these intercessions.
Prayer for Week One: 3-9 December
Light of the World, we celebrate this Advent with hearts full of longing for your coming -
- In the darkness of our world, give us courage to search for truth.
- In the darkness of our world, give us humility to acknowledge what keeps us from you.
- In the darkness of our world, give us insight to recognise the needs of our neighbours.
- In the darkness of our world, give us passion to create a more just society.
- In the darkness of our world, help us to bring hope to those who despair.
