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.
