Opening Prayer:
Father, all-powerful God, your eternal Word took flesh on our earth when the Virgin Mary placed her life at the service of your plan.

Lift our minds in watchful hope to hear the voice which announces his glory and open our minds to receive the Spirit who prepares us for his coming.

We ask this through Christ our Lord.

Amen

Closing Prayer:
Oh, Emmanuel, "God-with-Us," You have touched me;
you are God-with-Me.

Thank you for these weeks of prayer.

In the spirit of the season my waiting, my patience, feels sacred.

Refine and purify my heart with the hottest flame of your love.

Give me the courage of your prophets and let me do what is right even when others don't understand.

Bless my heart with generosity and make me ready to receive you.

Come, Lord Jesus! Come!

Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel!
