Christmas Prayer

It’s CHRISTMAS COUNTDOWN 2012 here on GUWG, where from now until December 25 we’re preparing our hearts for the arrival of the Savior of the World.

Here’s a beautiful little prayer to pray throughout the season:

Loving God,

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 your children,
and Christmas evening
bring us to our beds
with grateful thoughts,
forgiving and forgiven,
for Jesus’ sake.

AMEN

(Robert Louis Stevenson)
