So, we begin with our longing, our desire, and our hope.
When we wake up, each day this week, we could light that candle, just by taking a few moments to focus. We could pause for a minute at the side of our bed, or while putting on our slippers, or our robe, and light an inner candle. Who among us doesn't have time to pause for a moment? We could each find our own way, to pray something like this:
“Lord, the light I choose to let into my life today is based on my trust in You. It is a weak flame, but I so much desire that it dispel a bit more darkness today. . Let this candle be my reminder today, of my hope in Your coming.”
