Second Day of Advent - Peace (Closing Prayer)
Dearest most gracious Heavenly Father, we thank you for gift of Your son, Christ Jesus. In accordance with Your divine plan, you prepared the way for his birth and, through that glorious plan, you gave us the gift of salvation.
The preparation that took place so long ago still occurs today in our hearts. We prepare him room in our hearts and welcome him. As we continue to prepare, we receive yet another gift, a gift of peace. Knowing what You have done for us and continue to do for us brings us a wonderful peace.
Thank you, O Lord, for all of the gifts.
