A Christmas Prayer

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."

American Author 

(1850 - 1894)

Merry Christmas, everyone.
