Though we are your people walking in darkness, yet we seek the light. Our perspective as Christians is no better than a non-Christian; it is not a loftier position. We are all walking in darkness, life is mainly a mystery to us all, on this we can agree. Actually, it is this very mystery which makes being a Christ-follower faith and not magic. If we could conjure Him, He would not be God. But if we ask, as if He were really a person, then we seek the light.
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.
