Gather around your candles. Light prior week’s candles. Read the scripture, speak the prayer, light the candle. For further devotion, read the Christmas Connection.
Scripture ~ Isaiah 9:2, 6
2 The people walking in darkness have seen a great light…
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.
Prayer to Christ:
Great God, Father, Son, and Spirit, this season of Advent comes in the year of Covid. We are a world lost in the darkness. Everywhere and everything is disrupted. Where is the light of Hope, Peace, Joy, and Love? Praise be to our God, Your light arrives with the coming of a baby. The child born to bring salvation, the fullness of life, to all the world. Today we celebrate You because our darkness is overcome. We have life because the light of Christ burns in our hearts. Amen.
Now, Light the White Christ Candle.
Christmas Connection: Luke 2:1-7
The light of all the candles arrives in Jesus, a baby born to save all. On Christmas celebrate communion.
