World AIDS Day Service

One:
Tonight we find hope.
We find hope in our faith.
We find hope in each other.
Let us not be complacent in our hope, however.

Help us remember those who still die from this disease everyday.
Help us remember those who go to bed tonight without parents, orphaned by HIV.
Help us remember those who live in silence and suffer alone.

All:
God in our hope, hear us.

One:
We are all part of this human family.
Because of that, we are all affected by HIV/AIDS.
As one family, help us work together to fight discrimination.
Help us work together to raise awareness.
With our prayers, education and giving we can indeed make a difference.

All:
God in our hope, hear us.

One:
Tonight help us remember our brothers and sisters in far away lands.
Help us remember those who are our neighbors who long for hope and dignity as they fight this disease.
Give us the courage to stand with each other.
Increase our faith and strengthen the flame of light we bear.

All:
God in our hope, hear us.
