Advent Novena: Day Four

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 Four

Almighty God, help us to look forward to the glory of the birth of Christ our Savior, His coming is proclaimed joyfully in all the world. We await His healing power. Let us not be discouraged by our weaknesses as we prepare for His coming. Keep us steadfast in Your Love. Give us the joy of Your love to prepare the way for Him. Help us to serve You and our neighbor.

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)
