Advent prayer

We eagerly await the coming of our Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ
 he will renew our lowly bodies and make them like his own glorified body.

Sober, just and godly we live in this world,
as we wait in blessed hope for the glorious coming of the almighty God.
 He will renew our lowly bodies and make them like his own glorified body.

CONCLUDING PRAYER

O God, who have shown forth your salvation
to all the ends of the earth,
grant, we pray,
that we may look forward in joy
to the glorious Nativity of Christ.
Who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.
 Amen.
