Wednesday

Opening Prayer:
Father, may the coming celebration of the birth of your son bring us your saving help and prepare us for eternal life.

Grant this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.

Closing Prayer:
Dearest Lord, Your invitation settles in my soul:
'Turn to me and be safe.'

Something lets go inside when I take those words into my heart.

They are an invitation for me to rest.

So many moments of my life are filled with my own needs.

'Turn to me and be safe,' you say to me again.

Give me the great grace to let go from the depths of my soul.

Help me to be released from the demons I cling to with so much fear.

I hear your invitation to ask for help and I begin to list all the places in my life that need healing.

'Turn to me and be safe.'

You promise your saving help and I know it is the only thing that can heal me.

I feel your presence in my life and am aware of the growing joy I feel as I anticipate celebrating the birth of your son.

Amen.
