Things are busy and my mind is racing.
Life is full and there is always something more to do.
There are lots of things to get done
and it's hard to stop the noise and sense your power and presence for the work at hand.
I invite your Spirit to move in my heart and my mind.
Give me focus to see and hear the Christmas story anew.
Guide my thoughts. Inspire my ideas.
Renew my energies,
so that the time of Advent would be a blessing and a gift in the life of the church.
In your holy name I pray,
