Breath Prayers for Advent 1

A Breath Prayer is a simple, one-line prayer that may easily be expelled with one breath. The Prayer Committee has written a series of Breath Prayers for the season of Advent — a new prayer for each day leading up to Christmas. You are invited join in this prayerful journey of anticipation as we look toward the birth of the Christ Child in the manger.
