Advent wreath

The first candle symbolises hope
and is called the “Prophet’s Candle.”
The prophets of the Old Testament, especially Isaiah, waited in hope for the Messiah’s arrival.

Prayer for Hope

Dear Jesus, you are the hope in our messy world.

This Advent, help us slow down, listen to your voice, and focus on what’s really important.

We place our hope in you as we prepare our hearts to celebrate your birth at Christmas.
