This request comes from my chess buddy, “Optimal Play,” in Australia–O Come, O Come Emmanuel. Y’know–we sang this hymn in seventh grade, before the Supreme Court (spit) decided America’s children needed to be protected from Jesus Christ.
O Lord our God! Bless this Christmas season, and give it extraordinary power to draw hearts and souls to Jesus Christ, our Savior and our King! If we ever needed Christmas, we need it now. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
