Seventh Day of Advent
O God Who Comes,
So many people have lost hope; too many people never had much hope to begin with.
We praise you that wherever people are aware of your presence, hope is there.
Grant that we who know you are here and who thus carry your hope with us will live in ways that will cause others to catch a glimpse of you and thus a glimpse of hope, too.
Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
