Second Sunday of Advent Prayer

Come, Lord Jesus! Bring peace and healing in our family and our world. May we  hear again your own prayer “that we may be one”. May we prepare the way for   you by being generous and forgiving.  Family members show how they have experienced generosity and forgiveness. As we prepare for the coming of your Son, O God, we thank you for the blessing of your generosity and forgiveness. We give you thanks for this food and drink, signs of your gracious love. May this meal strengthen us to be generous and forgiving. May it strengthen us to share our gifts with the    hungry and all who look for your justice and mercy. Grant this through Christ our  Lord, Amen.
