Advent Novena: Day Five

Opening Prayer:

Father, all powerful and ever-living God, we give You thanks through Jesus Christ our Lord. When He humbled Himself to come among us as a Man, He fulfilled the plan You formed long ago and opened for us the way to salvation. Now we watch for the day, hoping that the salvation promised us will be ours, when Christ our Lord will come again in His Glory.

Day Five

Eternal Father, help us to look forward in hope to the coming of our Savior. May we live as He has taught, ready to welcome Him with burning love and faith. Let Your glory dawn to take away our darkness, and may we be revealed as a child of light at His coming. Let the light of His coming free us from the darkness of sin and renew His life within us.

In memory of the coming of our Lord and Savior, we beg You, Father, to grant us the graces we need to be prepared for His coming to our souls on Christmas. We ask in particular this favor: (mention your request). For the love Jesus, Your Son, has shown us in becoming man to save us, we beg You to grant our prayers, if it be Your holy will. Amen. (Say one Our Father, one Hail Mary and one Glory)
