Dear Lord, as I wait for your return, may I always be ready and alert. May I hear the cry at midnight and eagerly come out to meet you. Help me to prepare my heart and keep my lamp burning bright with faith and love for you. May I never be caught off guard or unprepared, but always be found faithful and ready to welcome you with open arms. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
