Three Little Candles


A prayer for the third Sunday of Advent, 2012


Dear God,

You have promised us that Your Light has come into the world, and the darkness will not overcome it.

We confess that Your Light is hard to see in our darkness of senseless violence, hunger, homelessness and addiction. You Light can seem as frail and flickering as the fames of these candles.

But we know that our hope is in You. You are always returning to us, to bind up our broken hearts. Help us to be your Light-bringers. Help us to carry Your hope and help into our world.

In the name of Jesus, Who is our hope, our help, our strength, our peace.
