“Master of both the light and the darkness.”  So often we hail Jesus only in the light, the good times, the clearly seen roads; we only see him coming in glory on the clouds.  But Jesus comes veiled in darkness, a secret birth in a backwater town.

Lord Jesus,
Master of both the light and the darkness,
send your Holy Spirit upon our preparations for Christmas.

We who have so much to do seek quiet spaces to hear your voice each day.
We who are anxious over many things look forward to your coming among us.
We who are blessed in so many ways long for the complete joy of your kingdom.
We whose hearts are heavy seek the joy of your presence.

We are your people, walking in darkness, yet seeking the light.  To you we say, “Come Lord Jesus!” Amen.
