Advent Prayer: May we be ready to meet Him at His Second Advent

O Almighty Father, fountain of light and salvation, we adore thine infinite goodness in sending thy only begotten Son into the world that, believing in him, we may not perish but have everlasting life; and we pray thee that, through the grace of his first advent to save the world, we may be made ready to meet him at his second advent to judge the world; through the same thy Son Jesus Christ our Lord.

Bishop William Walsham How (1823-1897)

H/T The Rev. Kendall Harmon, at TitusOneNine
