7 Spiritual Prayers for the Second Week of Advent

Dear God, in these early days of Advent, open my heart to the graces you are offering me.

Second Week of Advent Prayer
Sunday

Dear Lord,
Through the darkness, I look for your wisdom.
I want my heart to be open to you.
But sometimes in these days, it seems that
so many things come between us.

Help me to be awake and aware
of the radiance you bring to my life.
Help me to be grateful each day
for the blessings of family and friends.

Let me be a peacemaker
in my own life, and in the world.
Let me pray especially for this difficult world
and those who are so in need of an end to violence.
My heart begs for this as my Advent prayer today.

Second Week of Advent Prayer
Monday

God of Strength,
I need your courage.
You offer to make firm the knees that are weak.
Only you know how frightened I so often am.

And you do offer me strength.
There is the promise of your Son’s coming
and knowing that you will save me.
I can’t do this on my own
no matter how often I think I can.

Give me the humility to ask for your help
and open heart to accept
your healing and love in my life.

Second Week of Advent Prayer
Tuesday

Almighty God,
I hear it over and over: you are coming to me.

I feel my heart stir in anticipation,
and I sense that you are inviting me
to enter more deeply
into the mystery of your birth.

Help me to feel renewed patience settle in my heart,
and to lift my face in joy.

I have been like a lost lamb,
but I hear your voice calling me
and I feel how deeply you want me to return.
Somehow I know that you rejoice in my desire to find you.

Help me not to be afraid to say out loud, to believe:
Here is God, coming into my life.

Second Week of Advent Prayer
Wednesday

Jesus, I can see your special love
of those who are so often invisible in this world.
You sent your mother to give hope to the poor by appearing to Juan Diego.
Open my heart to fill with compassion
for those who are hungry and without dignity.

Grant me the ability to live simply and to see you in the faces of those around me.
In the darkness of these Advent nights
let me be guided by the light of your word.

Give me the humility to be led by you and the wisdom to learn from you.
I am grateful for the Savior who awaits us,
and eagerly await the time of rejoicing.

Let me look forward in hope
and turn to you with great trust,
knowing you will guide my steps
along the unknown path of this day.

Lord, like a loving parent,

and to live my life in you.

Thank you for the way you bless my life.
Thank you for listening to my prayers
and for planting deep in my heart
the knowlege that with you,
nothing is impossible.
