The Third Week of Advent
December 16—December 22, 2018
The Peace Candle
Re-light the first two candles.
Light the third candle and say:
We light this Advent Candle as a reminder of the coming of Christ, the light of the world. We light the Peace
Candle as we pray for the peace of Christ in our hearts and in our world. The light of peace must brave great
darkness, just as Jesus did when he came to earth. In an age when people struggle to find peace within
themselves, we worship the Prince of Peace.
Christ has promised to return and restore the earth to the way God created it to be, a place of peace. Where
are the places and situations in your life and in the world where you see peace? Why makes that place or
situation peaceful? How can you help bring peace to places where there is anger, conflict, or violence?
Dear God, we thank you for your gift of Jesus to the whole world. We pray that you would bring peace in
our lives and in our world. Please show us ways to act as your disciples and show others the way of peace.
In the name of Christ, the Prince of Peace, Amen.
