Advent Prayer

Advent Prayer: A Prayer for Lighting the Advent Wreath

DVENTThe liturgical year begins with Advent, a word derived from Latin that means “coming.” During Advent we prepare to celebrate the birth of Christ, and we look forward to Christ’s second coming at the end of time. Enjoy this prayer with children or your family as you light the Advent wreath candles.

Blessed are you, O Lord our God, king of the universe.

You sent your Son to be the Light of the world and to spread his light of love to all.

As we light the candles of this wreath may its growing brightness remind us of the approaching nearness of your Son

So that the day of His coming may find us prepared and filled with joy.

We ask this through Christ our Lord.

Amen
