Holy One,

As we begin to celebrate the season of Advent,
we remember and give thanks for the prophets, like Isaiah,
who help us prepare for Emmanuel, Christ with us.

Help us, like Isaiah, to
    remain faithful (when faith is uncool),
    seek justice (even when we are comfortable), and
    proclaim our hope, always (especially in challenging times).

Like Isaiah,
may we be hopeful
as we prepare for Christ!

Amen
