WELCOME TO OUR WORSHIP
THE THIRD SUNDAY OF ADVENT
COLLECT. O Lord Jesus Christ, who at your first coming sent your messenger to prepare your way before you: grant that the ministers and stewards of your mysteries may likewise so prepare and make ready your way by turning the hearts of the disobeient to the wisdom of the just, that at your second coming to judge the world we may be found an acceptable people in your sight; for you who is alive and reign with the Father in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
PRAYER AFTER COMMUNION. We give you thanks, O Lord, for these heavenly gifts; kindle in us the fire of your Spirit that when your Christ comes again we may shine as lights before his face; who is alive and reigns now and for ever. Amen.
