imminence anew

We pray, our God,
this Advent season,
for a sense of expectation
and anticipation
for more than presents and family,
and other aspects of how we celebrate the season
(including liturgical ones!).
Oh, all that.
But amidst all that,
also some sense of both expecting and anticipating
Your coming to us again,
Your persistent movement in history,
Your story still being made flesh.
We pray for some expectation and anticipation
of imminence anew.
This we pray in the name of the one
in whom it’s already happened,
amen.
