Prayer for the Third Sunday in Advent

Stir up your power, O Lord, and with great might come among us; and, because we are sorely hindered by our sins, let your bountiful grace and mercy speedily help and deliver us; through Jesus Christ our Lord, to whom, with you and the Holy Spirit, be honor and glory, now and for ever. Amen.

Psalm 98

  Sing to the LORD a new song, *
for he has done marvelous things.
  With his right hand and his holy arm *
has he won for himself the victory.
  The LORD has made known his victory; *
his righteousness has he openly shown in the sight of the nations.
  He remembers his mercy and faithfulness to the house of Israel, *
and all the ends of the earth have seen the victory of our God.
  Shout with joy to the LORD, all you lands; *
lift up your voice, rejoice, and sing.
  Sing to the LORD with the harp, *
with the harp and the voice of song.
  With trumpets and the sound of the horn *
shout with joy before the King, the LORD.
  Let the sea make a noise and all that is in it, *
the lands and those who dwell therein.
  Let the rivers clap their hands, *
and let the hills ring out with joy before the LORD, when he comes to judge the earth.
10   In righteousness shall he judge the world *
and the peoples with equity.
