A Shorter Advent Prayer

“Come, Lord Jesus, and be with me where I feel poorest. I trust that this is the place where you will find your manger and bring your light. Come, Lord Jesus, come. Amen” (Henri Nouwen)

How many of us have felt inadequate and weak this year? How many have felt overwhelmed with anxiety and fear? How many have tried to live out of victory and faith and ended up at the end of the day feeling like they’d failed?

God often comes to the lowliest. He comes to us when we feel poorest. His strength is perfected when we’re at our weakest.

Come, Lord Jesus, to Your people who need you most that they may feel you near tonight. Amen.
