Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

In anticipation of Christmas

As Christmas approaches ...

We pray for a deeper understanding of the mystery of the incarnation. Open our minds that we might grasp the significance of the babe in the manger and the wonder of the shepherds.

We ask for a heart that loves the Lord Jesus more passionately. Help us to put him first in this season. Grant us grace that we might do the things that will draw us closer to him.

We do not want to get caught up in the commercialism of the season. Penetrate our hearts with a deep caring for the people around us. Help us to give of ourselves and not just of our wallets.

We intercede for those who are hurting. Comfort those who have lost a love one this past year. Ease the suffering of those who equate the season with pain. Help more joy to be in their lives.

We commit ourselves to be vessels of your light and love this season. Please work through. Help us to bring the presence of Jesus (and Christmas) to all of those around us.
