Inspirational Prayers For An Advent Wreath

Advent is a time of year that signifies hope, peace, love, and joy. It is the season Christians are called to prepare their hearts and minds for the coming of Jesus Christ. One way to build anticipation during these weeks is through Advent wreath prayers. These prayers can be recited during family gatherings around your Advent wreath or incorporated into your daily family prayer time. Each week has a theme represented by one of the four candles—hope, peace, love, and joy (the final candle is white or gold). You can light all four candles at once for each reading if you prefer!

1st Sunday of Advent: Hope

Thanks to God for giving us hope when things look bleak and helping us keep our faith in him even when it feels like there’s nothing left to believe in. That’s why we pray in gratitude today: thank you for reminding us that we are never alone on this journey through life; thank you for your promise that good will always triumph over evil; thank you for making sure every need I have will be met with grace; help me remember that no matter what happens, your presence will always be near me because of Christ’s sacrifice on my behalf; I am grateful beyond words.”

Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

The Magnificat is a canticle that we sing at Vespers in honor of Mary’s joyous praise when she received news from an angel that she would conceive a child by God’s grace — Jesus. In Luke 1:46-55 we read about this event: “My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord; my spirit rejoices in God my savior… For he has looked upon his handmaid’s lowly estate; behold from now on will all ages call me blessed… He who dwells in heaven will laugh; [the Lord] will have them in derision … He who has mercy on them will lead them forth like sheep with no one to frighten them away… As for me, I am poor but happy because I trust in your promises.”

Regardless of what your situation is, these prayers can help you focus on what matters most during this season: creating joy and peace wherever you go.

  • “God our Father, we thank You for Your loving care throughout our lives. We thank You, especially at this time of year when we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ into our world; through him, You show us how to live as children of God in our daily lives. Be present with us now as we pray for people who are sick or suffering from physical or emotional pain; bring healing into their lives through Your presence among them and give them strength to carry on despite their difficulties. Comfort those who mourn by bringing peace into their hearts; let them know that You are working all things together according to Your plans so they can receive good things from above even now while they wait patiently until He comes again.”
