                                 A CHRISTMAS PRAYER



Dear Lord,
As we celebrate Your birth, let us remember that You are the true reason for
Christmas.   Let every sparkling light remind us how You illuminate our lives,
a shining beacon to guide us in our thoughts and actions each day, and how You light
us from within in the knowledge of Your love and truth.  Let the Christmas trees,
standing straight, tall, unbowed, remind us of Your uprightness, Your goodness, Your
perfection, and Your refusal to bow to worldly temptations, no matter how great the
challenge or trouble.  Lord, as we feast on Christmas treats, let us remember that You
are the sole provider of everything worth having, that all good things come from You.  
And as we enjoy our gifts, let us never forget that You are the greatest gift of all--our
wonderful Savior, Counselor, Giver of an eternal life whose wonders we cannot
imagine. So as we delight in Christmas, the happiest and brightest of holidays, let us
remember there would be no Christmas without You, Lord, and let our hearts be filled
with joy, and love and thankfulness, this Christmas and all the ones to come. In Jesus'
name we pray, Amen.
During this Christmas season, let us take the time to reflect and          
ponder over the love of God for us manifested through the Child of  
the  virgin. And after we have done so, let us pray for those who have
not  yet heard.                                                                                           
                                                                          



HAVE A MERRY CHRISTMAS
AND
A BLESSED AND PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR
