Holy God.
The season approaches
Candles, and holly, and snow, and evergreen trees….
Counting days, and making lists…

For some it’s names, and addresses, and gift ideas
For others it’s liturgies, and prayers, and choosing exactly the right combination of carols, and advent hymns and trying to please everyone. All the time.

Holy God. Mother!
Help me to pause.
To spend time doing nothing.
To simply be in your presence
In the weeks and days ahead.
Remind me that it doesn’t all have to be done Today!

Holy God. Breath.
Breathe into me.
Fill me. Still me. Touch me.
In the weeks and days ahead.
Remind me, that the world carries on, and I am just one small part.

Holy God. Friend.
Walk with me.
Teach me. Guide me. Show me.
Your people. Your friends.
In the weeks and days ahead.
Remind me that not everything I see is the whole story.

Holy God.
Mother, Breath, Friend.
Guide us all.
Keep us strong.
Show us your people, in the unexpected, in the stranger, in the refugee, in the protagonists.
Help me to pray for the oppressors as well as the oppressed.
For how can the world change without your love spreading to EVERYONE?!

Oh Holy God
Holy One
Hear us
Today
Amen
