Advent/Christmas Prayer of Approach — Cara Heafey, UK

This morning we have come to tell again
The story of angels and shepherds
Of disbelieving fathers and unlikely mothers

This morning we have come to hear again
The good, good news
Of love born among us
Of God here with us

This morning we prepare to receive the gift
Of a child born in a stable
A child who brings hope and light to the world.
