Simple Advent prayer

You may like having a wreath and doing a prayer which you add to each week of Advent. If so, here’s an idea of a family-friendly prayer you could use at home.

Here’s a prayer which I love using during Advent. I light a candle and say this prayer. I found it’s simplicity meant I learnt it very quickly and was able to use it to remember Jesus during the day too.

O Emmanuel, Jesus Christ
Desire of every nation
Saviour of all peoples
Come and dwell with us.

Here’s a more child-friendly version:

Emmanuel,
God with us,
Jesus Christ.
Come and live with us.
