Prayers of the People • Third Week of Advent

Here is the beautiful prayer our brother Sejun lifted up during our worship gathering on 13 December 2020. We invite you to read and to make it your ongoing prayer during this Advent season as well.

Heavenly Father,
The year 2020 has been a very challenging year
and many of us will never forget.
Help us remember
that the good news of Jesus’ birth
has the power to bring us
great joy this Christmas season.

We thank you for sending us Your Son,
So that He can become our Saviour,
So that He can bring peace
in the hearts of those that believe,
and joy to those that find their hope in Him.

We rejoice knowing that You love us,
And that You will always be with us.
Help us share the joy that we receive
from You to those around us.
We pray for the people
of this nation and this world,
That You will open up their hearts,
and that many will find joy
through You in these hard times.

As we look forward to a brighter 2021,
we pray for the completion
of many safe COVID-19 vaccines,
And Your continued protection
upon our healthcare workers and frontline workers
until the vaccine is widely available.
In Christ’s name we pray.
Amen.
