A prayer from CLWR for the week of the Second Sunday in Advent:
O God of lightning and whirlwind; we hear your voice calling from the wilderness. We don’t know which way to turn. We feel overwhelmed by the forces of darkness and hatred who seek to divide us. Help us to be the straight road in the wilderness. Teach us to live so that we can be the lion that lies with the lamb and the leopard that lies down with the kid. May your reign of justice begin with us. Amen.
