Advent Prayer (8)

For the desert places in which we walk
The streets we roam
The paths we cross
Guide our feet
Take us to places
Where you would go
Give us words that you would use
That in this Advent season
Of promise and preparation
We might point the way with John the Baptist
To the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!

Advent Prayer (7)

May this eternal truth be always on our hearts
That the God who breathed this world into being
Placed stars into the heavens
And designed a butterfly’s wing
Is the God who entrusted his life
to the care of ordinary people
became vulnerable that we might know
how strong is the power of Love
A mystery so deep it is impossible to grasp
A mystery so beautiful it is impossible to ignore

Advent Prayer for Hope (6)

 

Lord Jesus Christ,
who is, who was, and who is to come,
we pray for the virtue of hope,
that amidst the trials and difficulties
of this world,
we may keep our hearts fixed
upon you, who reigns over the cosmos.
May your grace enliven us,
strengthen us,
and defend us,
as we await your coming in glory. Amen

Opening Catholic Mass Prayer: Advent One (5)

Father in heaven,
our hearts desire the warmth of your love
and our minds are searching for the light of your Word.
Increase our longing for Christ our Savior
and give us the strength to grow in love,
that the dawn of his coming
may find us rejoicing in his presence
and welcoming the light of his truth.
We ask this in the name of Jesus the Lord.

All-powerful God,
help us to look forward in hope
to the coming of our Savior.
May we live as he taught,
ready to welcome him with burning love and faith.

who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever. Amen

Advent Prayer (3)

Father, in the wilderness of the Jordan
you sent a messenger to prepare people’s hearts
for the coming of your Son.
Help me to hear his words and repent of my sins,
so that I may clearly see the way to walk,
the truth to speak, and the life to live for Him,
our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen

A prayer for On Weekdays in Advent (2)

When shades of night around us close
And weary limbs in sleep repose
The faithful soul awake may be
And longing sigh, O Lord, to Thee

Thou true Desire of nations hear;
Thou Word of God, Thou Saviour dear,
In pity heed our humble cries,
And bid at length the fallen rise.

O come, Redeemer, come and free
Thine own from guilt and misery;
The gates of heaven again unfold,
Which Adam’s sin had closed of old.

All praise, Eternal Son, to Thee,
Whose Advent doth Thy people free;
Whom with the Father we adore
And Holy Ghost for evermore. Amen.

I found it in Household prayer, from ancient and authorized sources, with readings from the gospels and epistles for each day of the month using Google Books
