Prayer for the First Sunday of Advent

The Prodigal Son Feeding Swine by Bartolome Esteban Murillo, 1660.

The Prodigal Son Feeding Swine by Bartolome Esteban Murillo, 1660.

God of faithful love, ever resourceful, ever merciful, we draw near to you because you have first drawn near to us. You create the longing in our souls, the love in our hearts, and the faith which delivers our whole being from frustration. May our actions honor you, our words praise you, our thoughts marvel in you, and our spirits utterly adore you. Through Christ Jesus, who comes again in glory to judge the living and the dead.

Prayer provided by Ormonde Plater, Archdeacon of the Episcopal Diocese of Louisiana.
