Prayer of Watchfulness (Advent)

Transform us! Do something to us!
Cause a change to take place in our hearts and in our relationships!
Let our watching and waiting not be a waste – not because you don’t show up,
but because we don’t!
Call us to full & awake participation in the advent of peace and hope and justice!
Make this, not a season, but a movement of watchfulness that advocates and waiting that engages and adoration that stomps its feet in restless resistance to a too slow and too comfortable Coming!
