On Christmas day, Oh Lord, on this day when Your great light came into the world, we celebrate. We give You our life and give others our gifts as a sign of our love for You. As you brought Your Light for the world to Bethlehem, let each of us show your great Light of love, kindness, caring, and compassion to those around us.
When we find frustrations in our hustle and bustle this Christmas season, remind us that what we do this Christmas is not just because of You. Remind us, Oh Lord, that what we do is for You and for all of Your children on earth.
Let love spread around the world through us, because of Your Son coming into the world. By Your Holy name, let love touch every heart on earth, and let there be peace and good will among all nations. All these things I pray in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen!
