Tenth Day of Advent
O God Who Comes,
Thank you that you come to us in all the stages of life.
Thank you that you come to us in
the wonder and dependence of childhood,
the excitement and bewilderment of youth,
the dreams and adventures of young adulthood,
the stability and searching of middle age, and
the wisdom and anticipation of senior adulthood.
In whatever stage we are, help us to be open to the situation and to the changes; help us to listen to what you are saying to us and showing us through and in them.
