Third Sunday of Advent
O God Who Comes,
We praise you today for sending your Son Jesus to us as the Joy of the world.
Fill us with the joy that comes from knowing that you love us, that you are for us, and that you hurt with us.
Multiply our joy by leading us to share it with others through the ways that we love, treat, and help them.
You are our joy; empower us to be joy to other people.
Even so, come quickly, Lord Jesus!
