Spirit of Strength who abides with us in the sparkles and shadows-
In the midst of this glitzy season
Filled with every distraction known to people,
Give us the focus to finish what we’ve started.
May Advent draw our attention to the sweetness of the journey-
Not the saccharine superficial sentiments of cultural expectation.
May Advent enliven our spirits and energize our tired minds.
May Advent drive us away from disturbances
And give us the gall to reach into the caverns of injustice
to aid in the delivery of God’s holy righteousness.
