Jeremiah 33:14-16; Psalm 25:1-10;
1 Thessalonians 3:9-13; Luke 21:25-36
First Sunday of Advent
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.
