Lord, you call out to us all
in this special time of Advent grace,
and especially to the downhearted,
to those who suffer, to those whose spirits are low,
to those who feel the weariness of life.
You call us to look up, to raise our hearts,
to find our hope and salvation in you.
Help us to turn to you each day
in this precious time of Advent.
Show us your love, and renew us in hope.
