A Christmas Prayer
Loving Father, Help us remember the birth of Jesus,that we may share
in the song of the angels,the gladness of the shepherds,and worship of the wise
Close the door of hateand open the door of love all over the
world. Let kindness come with every giftand good desires with every
greeting. Deliver us from evil by the blessing which Christ brings,and
teach us to be merry with clear hearts.
May the Christmas morning make us happy to be thy children,and
Christmas evening bring us to our bedswith grateful thoughts,forgiving and
forgiven, for Jesus' sake.
