The Collect of the Day:  Merciful God, who sent your messengers the prophets to preach repentance and prepare the way for our salvation: Give us grace to heed their warnings and forsake our sins, that we may greet with joy the coming of Jesus Christ our Redeemer; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.  Amen.

Traditionally, there are seven readings for the Lessons and Carols service, starting with a reading from Genesis and concluding with the angel Gabriel's visitation to Mary.  Carols are sung or anthems offered following each reading.

An Advent Prayer:  Lord God, may we, your people, who look forward to the birthday of Christ experience the joy of salvation and celebrate that feast with love and thanksgiving. We ask this through Christ our Lord.  Amen.
