Advent Prayer

Creating God, break in!
As we watch and wait for you this Advent, break in:
Break in where there is sickness and suffering
Break in where there is grieving and mourning
Break in where there is depression and distress
Break in where there is doubt and confusion
Break in where there is hunger and poverty
Break in where there is violence and war
Break in where there is destruction and death
As we watch and wait for you this Advent, break in.

Redeeming God, break in!
As we watch and wait for you this Advent, break in:
Break in where the powerful hold power
Break in where the rich hold on
Break in where the homeless sleep
Break in where the hungry starve
Break in where the workers serve
Break in where the faithful worship
Break in where the people dream
As we watch and wait for you this Advent, break in.

Sustaining God, break in!
As we watch and wait for you this Advent, break in:
Break in where there is love and joy
Break in where there is celebration and praise
Break in where there is friendship and family
Break in where there is peace and love
Break in where there is kindness and mercy
Break in where there is certainty and accomplishment
As we watch and wait for you this Advent.

In the name of your great breaking in, break in. Amen
