A Christmas Prayer

Christmas love symbol of a heart

Lord Jesus, born in Bethlehem,

be with us in all our celebrations of your birth.

Lord, as we give thanks for

the fun, food, presents, decorations, our friends and family,

make us mindful of those

whose are in need, sorrow or suffering at this time,

and ready to act and pray for change.

Teach us Lord your ways of love, truth and peace

that transform human lives

so that next Christmas your reign of peace and love

rules over the whole world. Amen.
