Lord Jesus, Open our hearts and minds to the truth, that You will return when we least expect it. And, as we begin our Advent journey, Help us to accept Your challenge to stay awake, to be alert and to be prepared for the unexpected as we wait for Your coming. Move us to respond to Your plan, for us and for the world in the small acts of our everyday lives. Arouse in us a desire to notice opportunities to be generous and to be compassionate towards those we know and those we do not know. And give us the confidence to joyfully share the message of Your love with others.
