A prayer for the Third week of Advent

God of new life, as you called your servant John to point to a new way that challenged systems of power and privilege, call us to be messengers to the world of your grace and peace.   Even as your servant Mary carried the Christ-child and was on the margins of her society, urge us to be mindful of those on the margins of our society – including those who are new to our country, and those who seek refuge here.  Help us to open our hearts to those needing a word of hope and welcome.  In Christ’s name we pray. Amen.
