whose incarnation we celebrate during these dark days of December, we turn to you.
In these final moments of the Advent season,
with the celebrations of Christmas only days away,
offer compassion to ministry personnel
as they finalize worship bulletins,
sort out costumes for the nativity pageant
or search for the right words to proclaim your Christmas message.
Surround ministry personnel with your love,
as they share a final Advent visit,
preside at a funeral this week,
or pray with the dying....
