A Christmas Prayer

December 20, 2011


A Christmas Prayer

Loving Father, help us to 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
