In anticipation we gather. With expectation we wait.
We gather to watch for the coming of the Good News into our world and our lives.
We wait to see the fullness
of God’s vision.
O God, open the doors to our hearts,
that this year we may have room for the birth of Jesus.
O God, as we marvel over all that you are doing,
With so much wonder that words of praise
spring forth from our lips!
In this time of waiting,
let true worship begin in our hearts.
Let our praises rise up to the heavens!
Let our celebrations spread new hope
over a tired world!
Let us gather together all our dreams and live to worship our God!
Something to think about…
