Christmas Eve Prayer


Help us remember the birth of Jesus that we may
share in the song of the angels, the gladness of the
shepherds, and worship of the wise men. Close the
door of hate and open the door of love all over the
world.  Let kindness come with every gift and good
desires with every greeting.  Deliver us from evil
by the blessing which Christ brings, and teach us to 
be merry with clear hearts.  May the Christmas 
morning make us happy to be thy children, and
Christmas evening bring us to our beds with
grateful thoughts, forgiving and forgiven, 
for Jesus' sake.  Amen.
