Western Road URC's Advent Candle Readings
Liam: On the second Sunday of Advent, we light a candle to show that the church joyfully awaits the coming of its Saviour.
Pat: A Saviour who enlightens our hearts and scatters the shadows of fear and doubt. We pray that God will bless us so that we may reflect the splendour of Christ who loves us.
We Light the candle for Love
Pat: We Read from 1 John 1.7 “If we walk in the light as God is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, God’s Son, cleanses us from all sin.” From 1 Corinthians 13 v4 we remember “Love is patient, love is kind”.
Pat: Prayer for Love:
Come Lord Jesus.
Warm our hearts with your love.
Help us share your everlasting love
Help us remember love is patient,
Love is kind,
Help us remember to love thy neighbour as thyself
Help us to prepare for your coming.
Help us to see the good things we can do
Help us to see the good things others can do
Come Lord Jesus. Amen
