Sunday 29th November 2015 – Advent 1C (2)

Prayer of Approach

 

All time lies in Your hands,

Righteous Presence,

and each day is shaped

by the words and thoughts You have in store

for all You have made.

At the rise of the sun,

You call the day to begin,

and bring to life and action

the colour and activity of the world.

Even in the bleakest midday

communities are dancing

with tasks completed

or still to be done.

As the night falls,

You give the earth space and time to rest and reflect,

before the darkness takes hold

and allows the dreams of earth

prepare for another day.

 

The prayer continues with a confession that is borrowed from elsewhere.
