Call to Worship:  Psalms 116: 1 – 2 and 17 - 18
I love the Lord, for he heard my voice; he heard my cry for mercy.
Because he turned his ear to me, I will call on him as long as I live.
I will sacrifice a thank offering and call on the name of the Lord.
I will fulfil my vows to the Lord in the presence of all his people.
To the glory of God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, who lives and reigns forever, Amen.
 
Prayer of Praise and the Forgiveness of sins:
To our God and Saviour be glory, majesty, power and authority, through Jesus Christ our Lord, before all ages, now and forevermore!
Lord, keep us from stumbling and present us before your glorious presence without fault and with great joy, to the glory of your Name.
Father, cleanse us and forgive us, for we have sinned against you and against our neighbour.
We trust in Jesus Christ as our only Saviour and Lord:  now, o God, pardon us and restore us by your grace through faith in your Son.
Lord, build up your people in our most holy faith that we will remain praying in the Holy Spirit.
And keep us in your love as we wait for the peace and mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to bring us to eternal life.
Gracious God, grant us mercy when we are doubtful. Let us rather snatch the unfaithful from the fire of your vengeance and show mercy to all who are stained by our corrupted human existence by proclaiming the forgiveness of sin through Jesus Christ, our Lord.   (Jude 20 – 25)
God have mercy!
Father have mercy!
Lord, have mercy on us!
Amen.
 
Prayer of Intercession:
Loving God, on the Second Advent Sunday, while we wait for Christ’s return and for your peace to prevail, enable each of us to work for harmony and serenity as we experience the various conflicts which abound in our lives and in our world. As we worship you, may your peace be born into our lives.
 
Merciful Father, we pray that as peacemakers, we will prepare the way for the Lord Jesus and his gospel to spread his light through our unity and love for each other as his followers.
Not for our own sake, but in the first place for the sake of the Church and because the whole human race desperately hungers for the peace of God.
 
God of love and peace, have mercy on us and listen to our prayers:
that the 16 days of activism against violence against women and children will bear much fruit and save many lives;
that whenever leaders are being elected within our nation, the process will be open, just, fair and serene;
for the end of violent protest and for the power of peaceful remonstration for all who long for a better dispensation for their communities and their families;
for the eradication of poverty that causes anger and disillusionment.
for the healing of broken marriages, homes and families;
for the unity of all Christ’s followers
and for divine peace to be visible within every church.
 
Father of us all, we pray that you will heal the disheartened, restore those who are ill to health, mend all broken lives and encourage all who lost hope.
We pray that the Advent of the Lord’s Christ will be a triumphant peace march where your gospel proclaimed will save our souls, cure our warring hearts, restore our lives and bring peace amongst all your children.
Almighty God, remember in your mercy the persecuted church, protect innocent lives in war-torn countries and bring law and order where criminals are in control of vast regions of our world.
 
O Lord God of love, may your holy Word of peace change our hearts and our lives, bring us hope and joy and instill divine love in our conduct.
All these things we ask in Jesus’ name.
Amen.
