A prayer for lighting the fourth candle on the Advent ring. This prayer draws on the readings set for the Fourth Sunday of Advent, Year A, in the Church of England Revised Common Lectionary.
Advent 4 (Year A)
God of grace
you come among us in Jesus Christ
to save us from the darkness of sin.
May this light
announce the dawning of your saving presence
in the child of Mary.
Come, Lord Jesus. Amen.
