A prayer for the third Sunday of Advent

God of heaven and earth,
we know that we want joy
and are called to rejoice
and are offered examples of rejoicing.

God of heaven and earth,
we know that we have fatigue
and wander into uncertainty
and see examples of pain and struggle.

Today we light a candle called joy.
We ask you to use its light
to help us see you as a guiding glimmer,
to offer joy to our fatigue
and rejoicing to our uncertainty,
and to sustain us in our struggle.

Amen.
