In this Advent season we ask that they seek to answer God’s call, as you had, through faith.
That they are encouraged to walk with trust on an unknown journey.
That you guide them to embrace fully the teachings of your Son, and to share unfalteringly his words.
Give them courage to continue to follow God’s will in the face of hardships or persecution.
Let them always look to you as a model of enduring love.
We ask this in Jesus’ name, Amen.
