Thanksgiving and intercession prayer 28 November 2021

Hope bestowing One

reveal to us the signs of hope around us

in buds

in communities supporting one another

in Christ Jesus

your Son

in whom all our hope is founded

all which has true meaning finds its source

in this Advent season

help us to take time to reflect

to pause

to pray

to seek hope

as we await to receive the Yuletide promises anew

Promise Keeping One

we cannot thank you enough for the hope we have in the covenant you keep

with us

and all creation

help us to be participants in that hope filled promise

to bring hope

into the places

of hatred



within ourselves

our church

our families

your world

into the quietness of this place

we bring before you those people, places and situations

known to us

who need your hope

our Lord

this Advent season


all these prayers we offer

in and through Christ Jesus

in hope and trust
