Prayers of Adoration, Confession and Thanksgiving for Advent


God of majesty and power,
who spoke and this world was,
who breathed and this world lived,
who counts the hairs upon our head,
who sees our thoughts and reads our hearts,
who loves us more than we deserve,



To you O Lord we bring our lives,
troubled, broken or at ease,
a sacrificial offering
for you to use.
Take away our selfishness
and teach us to love as you loved.
Take away our sense of pride
and show us the meaning of humility.



For your word which endures
we give you thanks.
For your promises to which we hold
we give you thanks.
For such intimacy with you
we give you thanks.
For the love which from our birth
over and around us lies,
we give you thanks.
