raise high the ancient gateways,
and the king of glory shall enter.

Advent Prayer for Hope in Christ's Coming
All-powerful God, help us to look forward in hope to the coming of our Savior. May we live as he taught, ready to welcome him with burning love and faith. We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen
