Advent: A hopeful prayer

December 3, 2017

Editor's note: Each week of the Advent season, Bread for the World is posting a prayer for our members and friends. 

Hope

"He will also strengthen you to the end,
so that you may be blameless on the day of our Lord Jesus Christ."
(1 Corinthians 1:8)

God of Hope, we seek you.
During this holy season of Advent,
help us to see you in all whom we encounter.

God of Hope, we seek you.
We seek you in the crude manger,
a child born to save the world.
May your hope be a comfort
to all who long for justice.

God of Hope, we seek you.
May your hope fill our hearts
and grace our lips so that we might
reflect your hope for all the world.

Amen.

God of Hope, we seek you.
