Prayer for ourselves using Mary & Joseph

 

Loving God,

We thank you for Mary and Joseph and for their courage and trust.

Thank you for the way their journey from Nazareth to Bethlehem

was paralleled in their journey from being ordinary people to the

extraordinary people you called them to be. 

Please be with us as we travel through Advent this year,

and as we seek to become

the people you call us to be. 

May we too have courage and trust.

We ask it in the name of Jesus Christ.  Amen
