Today we light the candle of love. As we wait for Jesus, the Wonderful Counselor, we sit and reflect and pray for our world. Pray for our communities and neighbors and that love would permeate the places and spaces we enter.
I will sing of Your unfailing love, Eternal One, forever.
I will speak of Your faithfulness to all generations.
I will tell how Your unfailing love will always stand strong;
and how Your faithfulness is established in the heavens above.
You said, “I have made a covenant with My chosen one.
I made My servant, David, this promise:
‘I will establish your dynasty
so that you and your descendants will always be secure.
Your rule will continue for generations to come.’”
Creator of the world, you are the potter, we are the clay, and you form us in your image. Shape our spirits by Christ’s transforming power, that as one people we may live out your compassion and justice, whole and sound in the realm of your peace. Amen.
As you light the candle, breathe in love. Breathe out love.
