Christmas Prayer


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 the Worship of the Wise Men.

Close the door of hate
and open the door of Love all over the world.
Let Kindness come with every gift
and 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 the Christmas evening bring us to our beds with
Grateful Thoughts, Forgiving and Forgiven.

For Jesus' Sake........ Amen


~ Robert Louis Stevenson ~


Wishing you and your families a very blessed and Merry Christmas!
