Week 3: Joy & Peace
God of hope, who brought love into this world,
be the love that dwells between us.
God of hope, who brought peace into this world,
be the peace that dwells between us.
God of hope, who brought joy into this world,
be the joy that dwells between us.
God of hope, the rock we stand upon,
be the centre, the focus of our lives
always, and particularly this Advent time.
This Advent, make it real in our hearts.
Never have we needed Your joy and peace more than now.
Thank You for the gift of Jesus, our Immanuel, the Word made flesh.
We not only need Your peace and joy; Lord, we crave it.
You’ve promised rest for the weary, victory for the battle-scarred, peace for the anxious, and acceptance for the broken hearted—not just at Advent, but every day of every year.
Your name is still called
“The Mighty God,”
“The Everlasting Father,”
“The Prince of Peace.”
We know that peace on earth can only come when hearts find peace with You.
You are still our Joy.
You are still our Peace.
You are no longer a babe in the manger.
You are Lord of lords and King of kings.
And we still celebrate You as Lord—this Christmas and always.
