Remembering Jesus at Christmas Time

Dear God,

During this time of light and festivities,

help me to stay within the true Spirit of Christmas.

Birth the love of Christ into my heart,

that I may welcome Jesus fully into my life.

As you surrounded Jesus with angels,

and those ready to guide and protect him,

I ask you this holiday season to surround me.

Fill me with love and compassion

so I may remember always,

the poor, the outcasts, the lonely, the sick

and all those in need of Jesus’ healing love.

Open my heart to all that is good,

helping me always to walk in Christ’s light and love.

Amen.

 

Dr. Lisa Love

Christmas Prayer

Lord, in this holy season of prayer and song and laughter,

we praise you for the great wonders you have sent us:

for shining star and angel's song,

for infant's cry in lowly manger.

We praise you for the Word made flesh in a little Child.

We behold his glory, and are bathed in its radiance.

Be with us as we sing the ironies of Christmas,

the incomprehensible comprehended,

the poetry made hard fact,

the helpless Babe who cracks the world asunder.

We kneel before you shepherds, innkeepers, wisemen.

Help us to rise bigger than we are.

Amen.
