Third Sunday in Advent

Day late again, but here is the next collect:

“Lord, we beseech thee, give ear to our prayers, and by thy gracious visitation lighten the darkness of our heart, by our Lord Jesus Christ.”

This is the version found in the 1662 Book of Common Prayer:

“O Lord Jesus Christ, who at thy first coming didst send thy messenger to prepare the way before thee; grant that the ministers and stewards of thy mysteries may likewise so prepare and make ready thy way, by turning the hearts of the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; that at thy second coming to judge the world, we may be found an acceptable people in thy sight, who livest and reignest with the Father and the Holy Spirit, ever one God, world without end.  Amen.”
