An Advent Prayer
It is said that while there is life there is hope. This has even a deeper meaning in reverse, while there is hope there is life. Hope comes first, life follows on. Hope gives power to life because hope is strength. The amount of energy in the world is equal to the amount of hope in it. Hope is a light shining in the dark. It never gives up. As long as there is hope no situation in our lives is impossible. Advent invites us to wait in joyful hope for the coming of our saviour Jesus Christ. Lord, when all is said and done you are our only hope. Amen.
