As you light a candle:
Why do we light this candle?
To remember that Jesus is with us.
O gracious and holy God, give us diligence to seek you,
wisdom to perceive you,
and patience to wait for you.
Grant us, O God, a mind to meditate on you,
eyes to behold you,
ears to listen for your Word,
a heart to love you,
and a life to proclaim you,
through the power of the Spirit of Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.
Songs (click on song title to listen)
The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.
He will not always accuse, nor will he keep his anger forever.
He does not deal with us according to our sins, nor repay us according to our iniquities.
For as the heavens are high above the earth, so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him;
as far as the east is from the west, so far he removes our transgressions from us.
As a father has compassion for his children, so the LORD has compassion for those who fear him.
—Psalm 103:8-13, NRSV
We Hear God’s Word
