Lord our God, we praise you for your Son, Jesus Christ: he is Emmanuel, God with us, the hope of the peoples. He is the wisdom that teaches and guides us. He is the Savior of every nation. Lord God, let your blessing come upon us as we light the candles of this wreath. May the wreath and its light be a sign of Christ's promise to bring us salvation. May he come quickly and not delay.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
Prayer from Fr. Pat's Place
