Advent Prayer, Third Week

Advent Prayer, Third Week December 15, 2013

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.

  • “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”
