Prayer of the Week

Lord, you came to us in the fullness of time.

Forgive us for not opening our eyes to your coming.

It’s time that we prepare for your coming.

Let the earth ring with song. Let the light break forth.

Let us all rejoice in the miracle of love.
Let Christ come into the fullness of our time. Amen.

(based on Isaiah 60:1-3; from The Worship Sourcebook, 2nd ed.)
