A prayer for the fourth Sunday of Advent. And Christmas morning.

God of forever and God of this moment,
You watch and work
from ancient times
in now
for ever.
We only live now.
We light candles
We say “I love you”.
We lie down and get up.
Tiny actions in this moment that feel almost useless some times.
They would be if not for you.
who gave us light
who gives us love
who laid down your life and got up.
At Advent we do our best to remember that you were and are and will be.
And we pray that you forgive us when we forget.
And this candle we light to remember.
