An O Antiphon Prayer Point for Advent

O Adonai, and leader of the house of Israel, who appeared to Moses in the fire of the burning bush and gave him the law on Sinai: Come and redeem us with an outstretched arm. 
He has already redeemed us in one sense, but many still need to know it and accept it. We can pray that those we care about soon will because the night is far spent and the day is at hand.

For those who do know and have accepted, there can still be areas and behaviours we have allowed to sneak out from under the cover of that redemption. As we repent, come O Adonai, and redeem those things with Your mighty outstretched arm, too.
