Lighting of the Candles Scripture: Isaiah 9:6-7
“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.
Of the greatness of His government and peace there will be no end.
He will reign on David’s throne and over His kingdom, establishing and upholding it with
justice and righteousness from that time on and forever.
The zeal of the Lord Almighty will accomplish this.”
(Light the 4th candle.)
We light this candle as a symbol of Jesus Christ the Prince of Peace. May the visitation of your Holy Spirit, O God, make us ready for the coming of Jesus, our hope and joy. O come, O come Emmanuel.
