Prayer for Avent 4

Father of Light,

The creator of the universe
came to us as a helpless child,
reminding us that there is no
reconciliation without risk
or love without a chance of loss.

But we sacrificed peace
on the altar of security,
preferring to remain in darkness
than to venture out into the light,
desiring our kingdom more than yours.

Give us the courage
to drop our guard,
and open our lives
both to you and
to one another.

Amen
