O Lord our God, bless this coming Christmas and make it glorious and mighty to dispel the darkness of this age, to hearten your people, to open the eyes of the spiritually blind:
To proclaim Jesus Christ the Son of God, our salvation and our hope, who by the sovereign power of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption;
By whose stripes we are healed;
By whose death and resurrection we live!
O Lord our God, make us tireless and courageous in the service of Jesus Christ Our King–Amen.
