Our service reflected the fourth Candle as the Candle of Peace.
A prayer for this week's Advent observation:
We light this candle as a symbol of the Prince of Peace.
May the visitation of your Holy Spirit, O God,
make us ready for the coming of Jesus, our hope and joy.
Verses for today:
Isaiah 9:6-7a New International Version (NIV)
6 For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
7 Of the greatness of his government and peace there will be no end.
This morning we prayed for peace to reign in out hearts as we prepare to welcome our Savior.
