On this day, before you begin prayer, take time to relax by breathing deeply.
Holy God, three in one, we hear in our reading that you have spoken to us through prophets and through your Son, Jesus. Open our ears and our hearts that we may hear you speaking to us in many and various ways this Advent season. Speak to us in your word, in community, in prayer and even in the hustle and bustle. May we spend time in quiet, listening for your still small voice – the voice that leads us into the future. In Jesus’ blessed name we pray, AMEN.
Close with the Lord’s Prayer, pausing between each word.
