Second Week of Advent
December 10 – 16, 2017

Grant that your people, we pray, almighty God,

may be ever watchful for the coming of your Only

Begotten Son,

that, as the author of our salvation himself has

taught us,

we may hasten, alert and with lighted lamps,

to meet him when he comes.

Who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the

Holy Spirit,

one God, for ever and ever.
