Fourth Sunday of Advent
Almighty God of hope, hear our prayer.
May we become as you designed us to be.
May we lift one another up in your image.
May we humble ourselves at your feet with thankful hearts.
May we glorify you, our Father, as He who may grant us peace, love, joy and hope now and forever.
We light the candle to echo the hope you inspire in us, one and all.
And all at once with the angel there was a great throng of the hosts of heaven, praising God with the words: Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace for those he favors. (Luke 2:13-14)
