O Lord, Awaken Us to Receive and Serve Your Son

Dear Lord, awaken us that we may be prepared to receive your Son with joy when he comes and to serve him with a pure heart. Graciously hurry the coming of that day. Bless and prepare us with wisdom and strength that in the meantime we may walk wisely and uprightly. May we joyfully wait for the coming of your dear Son and so depart blessed from this valley of sorrow. Amen.
Luther's Prayers (ed. Herbert F. Brokering; Augsberg: Minneapolis, 1994), 106.
