Collect for Third Sunday of Advent
Stir up your power, O Lord, and with great might come
among us; and, because we are sorely hindered by our sins,
let your bountiful grace and mercy speedily help and deliver
us; through Jesus Christ our Lord, to whom, with you and
the Holy Spirit, be honor and glory, now and for ever. Amen.
(Book of Common Prayer, 211)
Lord, WE need to be stirred up.
Stir our hearts and minds and thoughts.
Stir our feelings and prejudices.
Stir our convictions.
Stir our faith.
and we will shift and change
and form new creations in You.
