O God of glory, you have sent your only Son into our midst to bear us in joy into your presence. Waken those whose faith slumbers; stir up those whose love has waned into indifference; rouse to fullness of life those who have abandoned their journey toward you amid the hardships they have met along the way. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.
Prayer from Magnificat—U.S. Edition, Morning Prayer, Sunday, December 5, 2021.
