Here’s a beautiful little prayer to pray as the big day draws near:
For some of us the Christmas story is so familiar that it has become ho-hum.
Please deliver us from this kind of response to your wonderful Good News. Let us see your glory in fresh ways.
Open our hearts to the hallelujah chorus of the angelic hosts.
Help us seek you as diligently as the wise men.
Draw men and women, boys and girls to yourself this Christmas.
May we all experience Christmas anew in our hearts.
