  • 1. Second Sunday of Advent Prayers for Peace and Justice December 8, 2013 9:00 a.m .
  • 2. Welcome and Invocation
  • 3. Come Thou Long-Expected Jesus #254 ELW
  • 4. Come, thou long expected Jesus, Born to set thy people free; From our fears and sins release us; Let us find our rest in thee.
  • 5. Israel’s strength and consolation, Hope of all the earth thou art, Dear desire of every nation, Joy of every longing heart.
  • 6. Joy to those who long to see thee, Day-spring from on high appear Come thou promised Rod of Jesse, of thy birth we long to hear
  • 7. O’er the hills the angels singing news glad tidings of a birth Go to him, your praises bringing, Christ the Lord has come to earth.
  • 8. Come to earth to taste our sadness, He whose glories knew no end By His life He brings us gladness, Our Redeemer, Shepherd, Friend
  • 9. Leaving riches without number, Born within a cattle stall, This the everlasting wonder, Christ was born the Lord of all.
  • 10. Born thy people to deliver, Born a child and yet a king; Born to reign in us forever, Now thy gracious kingdom bring.
  • 11. By thine own eternal Spirit Rule in all our hearts alone; By thine all sufficient merit Raise us to thy glorious throne.
  • 12. ~Prayer of Confession~ P: Merciful God, we bring before you these things in our worship and in our lives which cause you pain. Straighten out the areas in our lives which hinder people from discerning your way, O God. All: Smooth the rough edges of our witness so that anything which prevents people from hearing your word is cleared away.
  • 13. P: Many people walk through shadowed valleys at this time, weighed down by painful, recycled memories. All: Forgive us when we fail to become involved with the needs of others by pleading seasonal busy-ness.
  • 14. P: Advent God, you call on us to prepare the way for Jesus’ birth and yet each year it seems that we spend more time making preparations for our own pleasure rather than preparing for Jesus to be born anew in our hearts and lives, in our families, our communities, our nation, our world.
  • 15. All: Forgive us for getting so involved in partying, buying gifts, ordering food, writing cards that we have no energy left to celebrate the reason for such activity – the birth of Jesus Christ. P: Help us, O God, to prepare ourselves faithfully and sincerely to receive the Christ-child. All: Amen!
  • 16. Assurance of Forgiveness P: The apostle Paul prayed that our love may overflow more and more with knowledge and full insight to help us determine what is best, so that in the day of Christ we may be pure and blameless. Jesus Christ was sent by God into the world, not to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him. Those who believe in him are not condemned. All: Thanks be to God!
  • 17. ADVENT CANDLE LIGHTING P: The second candle of Advent is the light of Peace. ALL: Amidst the terror and threats of war in our world, the Light of Christ is a small beacon of peace shining in the gloominess, driving away our fear.
  • 18. P: We light this candle today to remind us that Christ is the Prince of Peace. ALL: He is the One promised from the beginning of the world; the One whose birth, life, death and resurrection will bring lasting and eternal peace to all people. We thank God for the hope he gives us and for the peace he bestows.

  • 20. A Candle is burning, a flame warm and bright, a candle of hope in the winter’s dark night. While angels sing blessing From heaven's starry sky, our hearts we prepare now For Jesus is nigh.
  • 21. A Candle is burning, a candle of peace, a candle to signal that conflict must cease: for Jesus is coming to show us the way; a message of peace humbly laid in the hay.
  • 22. PRAYER OF THE DAY: Stir up our hearts, Lord God, to prepare the way of your only Son. By his coming nurture our growth as people of repentance and peace; through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, One God, now and forever. Amen
