Scripture for The Second Sunday in Advent

Isaiah 9:2, 6-7 (ESV)

2 The people who walked in darkness

have seen a great light;

those who dwelt in a land of deep darkness,

on them has light shone.

6 For to us a child is born,

to us a son is given;

and the government shall be upon his shoulder,

and his name shall be called

Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,

Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

7 Of the increase of his government and of peace

there will be no end,

on the throne of David and over his kingdom,

to establish it and to uphold it

with justice and with righteousness

from this time forth and forevermore.

The zeal of the Lord of hosts will do this.

God, the Almighty, thank You for fulfilling this prophecy and sending Your Son, Jesus, the great Light to reveal all the dark places in our lives and cleanse them with justice and righteousness. He is our Wonderful Counselor, our Mighty God, our Everlasting Father, and the Prince of Peace. We worship and adore Him, and in His name we pray. Amen.
