Read Acts 2:37-42.
God of Light that overcomes all darkness, we cry out to you this season of Advent. Hear our concerns for our loved ones, our relief that this semester is almost done, our fear of uncertain futures, our hope that you are working through us, in us, and with us, and our joy grounded in your love. Send your Holy Spirit to us and the communities we call home, our ministries, our families, our friends, and neighbors, so that we may more fully devote ourselves to you through prayer, fellowship, service, and teaching. Amen.
