A Christmas Prayer

December 25, 2022

A Christmas Blessing

Let us pray together this Christmas:

May our minds be opened to further understand where we need Christ’s light in our lives. 

May our ears be opened to hear the words of Christ calling us to make room for Him in our lives.  

May our eyes be opened to see all the ways Christ is being birthed into our lives. 

May our hearts be opened to receive the hope of the light of Christ in our lives. 

May our bodies embrace the deep bone understanding that we are not alone because God is with us in our lives. 

May our hands and feet carry this Good News to all we encounter in our lives.

May our mouths open and bring messages of faith, of hope and of love heralding the reason for joy in our lives.
