Prayer and Personal Confession
Candle Lighting – Town of Bethlehem
– When the right time finally came, God sent his own son.
LIGHTER – The candle of Bethlehem, signifies our making ready to receive Christ
into our hearts and homes.
– We light this candle in faith, hoping
that the promise of peace, joy, and grace will be ours.
of Praise #22 “Angels from the Realms of Glory”
of Confession God in whom all hearts
find welcome, we confess that we have not yet made room in our hearts for the
Christ Child. We find the coming birth another demanding event in our crowded
and busy lives. Like the innkeeper who refused Mary and Joseph shelter, we find
ourselves juggling people and obligations, torn between our compassion for the
hurting and the reality of what little we can do to bring comfort to those who
are in need. As we gather in your presence and come to your holy table, feed
our souls; forgive our sins; and renew within us that special love that brought
Jesus to be a light in a world of darkness. In the name of the Bethlehem Babe
we pray. Amen.
