Father, this advent season, We are coming unraveled, O God, pulled apart from every angle, because we have each chosen our own way, forgetting the common good, the universal good, your true good. We are in need of a way back from the messes we make for ourselves, because we have, too often, rejected your way to true peace, true wholeness. We are lost, and we need Christ to come quickly.

Come, Lord Jesus; forgive us and restore us.Come, Lord Jesus; guide us and deliver us.Come, Lord Jesus; teach us and renew us.Come, Lord Jesus.
