Let us pray as Advent draws to a close, that Christ will truly come into our hearts.

Lord, fill our hearts with your love, and as you revealed to us by an angel the coming of your Son as man,

so lead us through his suffering and death to the glory of his resurrection,

for he lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever,
