My little Lord Jesus,

I love You and thank You for this Advent season.

Please help me to understand all that You have done for me.

Your loving mother held You in her heart and brought You into this world.

Help me to do the same.

My loving Jesus,

I choose You, this Advent, as my King and my God.

Draw me close to You and help me to see my sins so that I can change the things that You want me to change.

Mother Mary,

Pray for me this Advent so that I may do all that God wants me to do.

You said “Yes” to all that God asked of you.

Please pray for me that I may do the same.

Come, Lord Jesus,

Come, Lord Jesus,

Come, Lord Jesus, come!

I love You, Jesus.
