A prayer for Advent 1

Christ child growing in Mary’s womb,
What will you bring into this world?
Will you bring hope to my despair?
Will you bring comfort to my grief?
Will you make this mess less messy?

Christ child growing in Mary’s womb,
What will you carry for me?
Will you carry all that is lonely?
Will you carry my fear of losing everything?
Will you carry the anxiety that burrows within me?

Christ child growing in Mary’s womb,
What kind of a king will you be?
Will you lead me to quiet waters?
Will you love the lost parts of me?
Will you look at my wounds and cry with me?
