Advent Prayer

About this article

This Advent prayer was taken from Good News, Day by Day: Bible Reflections for Teens and helps young people prepare their hearts for Jesus' coming.

Prepare the way of the Lord! (Isaiah 40:3, Matthew 3:3)

Advent is a time of preparation for the arrival of the Savior. How can we prepare?

A few ideas:

  • Set aside more time each day to pray
  • Spend some time with someone who needs a friend
  • Write to, call, or e-mail a lonely relative weekly
  • Keep a daily journal
  • Make peace with someone in your life

Is there something you can do in your daily life to prepare for the coming of the Savior?

Help me to prepare my heart for Jesus' coming, loving God.

For more: read Isaiah, chapter 40, again.
