An Advent Prayer: Let Peace Become Us.

I wait in the quiet of dawn suspended behind the darkness of night. Snow blankets the world outside my window. I wait.

He is coming, they sing. His birth heralded around the world by shepherds watching and three Kings drawing near. Angels we have heard on high.

He is coming.

And the world waits. It waits for a child to be born of Mary. A child for whom good tidings will ring across the land. Hail Mary full of grace. Your time draws near.

Draw near. Draw nearer my heart and let its beat call you into this song of hope. Sing loud this song of peace for all mankind.

Sing loud. Rejoice. Rejoice O Israel. To thee shall come Emmanuel.

Come. Come into my heart and let joy to the world resound with every breath. Let joy become me.

Joy to the world. He is coming.

Let us rejoice.

Believer or non-believer, Christian, Buddhist, Jew or Muslim. No matter our faith, let us rejoice in this prayer for hope, peace, love and joy in our world.

Let peace become us.

Let there be peace among us.

Let there be peace.
