Advent Prayer, Third Week

Stir up your power, O Lord, and with great might come among us; and, because we are sorely hindered by our sins, let your bountiful grace and mercy speedily help and deliver us; through Jesus Christ our Lord, to whom, with you and the Holy Spirit, be honor and glory, now and for ever. Amen. 

The lines of this prayer are powerful and worth meditating on individually:

  • “Stir up your power, O Lord”
  • “With great might come among us”
  • “We are sorely hindered by our sins”
  • “Let your bountiful grace and mercy speedily help and deliver us”
