I’m typing this on Sunday morning, for publication Wednesday morning, when I expect to be doing more Christmas shopping.
This is a prayer, for this Christmas and every Christmas. Please join in.
O Lord our God! Bless this Christmas of 2019, and give it power to work day in, day out, day and night, and every day of 2020. Give it speech that all might hear. Give it the power to draw our hearts to Jesus Christ your Son, our Savior and our rightful King: give it the power to make us strong in His service, strong in His love. And may it move us to love one another, as Our Lord Himself commands.
All year long, O God! Bless this Christmas all year long. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
