Advent Prayer

Every year I come across this advent prayer and it stirs my soul to turn toward heaven, expectant to see God coming down to earth.
Stir up your power, O Lord, and with great might come among us; and, because we are sorely hindered by our sins, let your bountiful grace and mercy speedily help and deliver us; through Jesus Christ our Lord, to whom, with you and the Holy Spirit, be honor and glory now and for ever. Amen. {The Divine Hours}
Truly I am hindered by my sins and I need God to offer me mercy. In God's subversive way, when he stirred up his power and with great might came among us, he showed up as a baby. Only God would rescue the world from a manger.

Peace to you this Advent.
