Eternal God,

In the psalms of David,
in the words of the prophets,
in the dream to Joseph,
your promise is spoken,
and takes flesh at last,
in the womb of the Virgin.

May Emmanuel
find welcome in our hearts,
take flesh in our lives,
and be for all peoples the
welcome of advent
of redemption and grace.

We ask this through him
whose coming is certain,
whose Day draws near;
your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ,
who lives and reigns with you,
and the Holy Spirit,
one God, forever and ever.

Amen.
