December 23: Advent Weekday Prayer
Almighty everliving God, as we see how the Nativity of your Son according to the flesh draws near, we pray that to us, your unworthy servants, mercy may flow from your Word, who chose to become flesh of the Virgin Mary and establish among us his dwelling. Who lives and reigns with you.
