PRAYER FOR THE SECOND WEEK OF ADVENT




Holy God, Holy and Mighty, Holy Immortal One 
it is not difficult to play the game of holier than thou. 
In a season that would unite all people in the hope of your coming Kin-Dom 
we use our own beliefs to choose and mantain enemies. 
In a season that would unite all people in the promise of your peace 
we are at war, within ourslves, and with those different from us. 
Help us to find ways to make and grow relationships that are 
based in your love 
fostered by your justice 
transformed by your mercy and compassion. 
May equality with equity be the gift you bring to us in Advent. 
May healing and wellness be yoiur gift to all this Christmas. 
For we pray as your people with the yearning of our heart and hearts 
that your Kin-Dom come, your will be done; 
here and now
on earth as it is in heaven. 
Blessed are you, O God, 
and blessed is your Kin-dom forevermore.
