Our_Lady_of_Perpetual_Help_Church_silhouette_altus_arkansasA prayer for the second Sunday of Advent:

Ever present God, you taught us that the night is far spent and the day is at hand.

Grant that we may ever be found watching for the coming of your Son.

Save us from undue love of the world, that we may wait with patient hope for the day of the Lord, and so abide in him, that when he shall appear, we may not be ashamed; through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen.
