3rd Sunday of Advent (Year C) – Words for Worship

Prayer of Confession (adapted from Philippians 4:4-7)

God of peace, we confess that we allow our hearts to be weighed down by worry and troubles.  Encourage us, by your Spirit, to take all things to you in prayer.  Guard our hearts and minds by the power of your peace and love, and help us know that you are near.

Prayer for Illumination (inspired by Isaiah 12:2-6)

God of salvation: as we draw from your Word this day, give us strength and understanding that we may make your deeds known and sing your praises with joy.
