Silent night, Holy night
All is calm, all is bright
Round yon virgin, mother and child
Holy infant, tender and mild
Sleep in heavenly peace,
Sleep in heavenly peace. 

Silent night, Holy night
Shepherds quake, at the sight
Glories stream from heaven above
Heavenly, hosts sing Hallelujah.
Christ the Savior is born,
Christ the Savior is born.

Many of us dream of the serenity that “Silent Night” paints in our hearts and mind. Depending on the circumstances in which one finds themselves, “Silent Night” can stir in the depth of your soul many different emotions. Just a simple reading of the account of the coming of Christ in the books of Matthew and Luke will reveal that there were many different “SILENT NIGHTS” for the individuals involved in His first coming.

During the next few weeks we are going to look at some of the “Silent Nights” that not only individuals like Zacharias and Elizabeth, Joseph and Mary, and the shepherds experienced but times of silence that we all encounter in our journey of life.

This morning we see through the lives of Zacharias and Elizabeth that even though our prayers are not immediately answers and we begin to think that God is not listening, we should never quit praying. Even though God seems to not hear us and is silent in our circumstances, is always at work in our lives, even in the “Silent Nights.”
